Justice Mayor Wadyajena Released On $200k Bail In Corruption Case

Justice Mayor Wadyajena Released On $200k Bail In Corruption Case

Justice Mayor Wadyajena and his accomplices were today granted $200 000 bail.

The politician and his accomplices were ordered to surrender their passports and report to police once every Friday.

Harare magistrate Stanford Mambanje who granted Wadyajena, ruled that the prosecution failed to stand up its opposition to bail on basis that he would interfere with witnesses.

Wadyajena and his c-accused were arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission earlier this week on US $5 million corruption charges. They are accused of embezzling the money which they used to buy and import for themselves 25 haulage trucks from the USA.

In recent years, the Zimbabwean justice system has been criticised for being lenient with prominent people associated with Zanu-PF who have been charged with corruption. 

Cases referenced in what is now called a “Catch and Release” routine include those of Wicknell Chivayo, Henrietta Rushwaya, and Dylish Nguwaya.

I want to tell my colleagues what is happening on Honourable Advocate Job Sikhala and Honourable Godfrey Sithole and 13 CCC supporters who are wallowing in prison while really criminals in the likes of Justice Mayor Wadyajena and his accomplices are questionably freed on further questionable amount of bail.

The prosecutor who handled bail application in this case must be investigated for corruption. It appears there was an exchange of brown envelopes.

There is really a danger of accused persons interfering with state witnesses.

It seems courts have already been told how to deal with the Job Sikhala and Godfrey Sithole case. I am not a qualified lawyer in criminal matters, but it seems the captured judiciary has been given instructions to try, find them guilty and send them to jail as good example. The judiciary seems have received instructions to try them from remand Prison and send them to jail without the option of a fine.

How can Justice Mayor Wadyajena and his colleagues get peanut butter bail without a fight ? Their crime of swindling Cottco of over $5 000 000 is very serious. There must have been exchange of brown envelopes here.

The presiding magistrate Mambanje pointed out in passing that prosecuting authority did not bring up the likelihood of accused persons interfering with state witnesses.




Yours sincerely

Catch and realese ,these guys will never be convicted. If this was a proper country, the trucks will be confisticated and Lamborghini yake taken and even that Borrowdale house as they are all proceeds of crime and him will serve a sentence of not less than 2 years in jail to deter other people from corrupt activities. But knowing Zimbabwe hapana chaanoitwa he has paid for his crime bumg spending a night in jail and paying that measly 200k bond.

Any crime in Zim which doesn't threaten those in power is considered of less importance. The plundering of Cotco is seen as very insignificant. I feel for the cotton farmer who is paid peanuts while some people enrich themselves in a corrupt way like this. There is need to make sure the people we vote into office pass integrity test first.
