Chief Magistrate, Mr Mishrod Guvamombe has been suspended effective Friday 11 January 2018 pending investigations into how suspects under trial ended up taking attachment jobs at the same courts trying them.
This follows the uptake of industrial attachment jobs by former ministers Savior Kasukuwere and Supa Mandiwanzira at the Harare Magistrates Courts.
The two are answering to charges of corruption involving abuse of power during their tenure as government ministers. The duo is law students with the University of Zimbabwe.
Suspicion is riding high on the actions of the magistrates’ boss that the presence of the two at the lower court’s employ could have been influenced by corrupt dealings involving Guvamombe’s hand.
Guvamombe is not new to controversy as his name was in 2012 fingered in the misuse of donor money meant for the Victim Friendly Unit of the lower court system.
