Zinara Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nkosinathi Ncube facing allegations of corruption and under further probe by the Zimbabwe Anti- Corruption Commission (ZACC) was freed on bail this afternoon.
Magistrate Trinos freed Ncube on a ZWL $10 000 bail when he appeared in court facing charges of victimizing ZINARA workers who are believed to have provided ZACC with details of alleged corruption at the parastatal.
Ncube allegedly connived with ZINARA finance director, Adam Zvandasara, and human resources administration director, Gilfern Moyo, to transferred Jeremiah Singende, Munyaradzi Tongowona, Tonderai Marange, and Nathaniel Straus Tembo who they suspected had turned whistleblowers.
Ncube’s bail is tied to conditions which include reporting once a week at Highlands police station and not interfering with witnesses.
“Accused is to report once a week at Highlands Police station and not to interfere with witnesses,” the court-ordered.
It is the state’s case that between October 7 and 26, 2020, Ncube connived with Zvandasara and Moyo to transfer the four employees from the ZINARA head office to various tollgates after the employees had given information to ZACC during investigations about alleged criminal abuse of office by the three.
According to the State papers, Ncube signed all the transferring letters.
