Ex-minister Mupfumira acquitted

Online Desk
Former Public Service Minister Prisca Mupfumira has been acquitted of a corruption charge emanating from a housing project undertaken by Nssa in Gweru in 2017.
Mupfumira was accused of acting contrary to her duties by directing NSSA to engage in the Muzenya off-take housing project in Gweru which resulted in a company called Drawcard Enterprises entering into an agreement with NSSA without following the tender process.
She was accused of handpicking the company and imposing it on NSSA but in his judgment this morning, regional magistrate Ngoni Nduna who has since been elevated to the High Court bench as a judge said there is no evidence to link her to the offence and found her not guilty.
The magistrate said from the evidence before the court, there is no link that she knew about the company prior to its engagement or that she received consideration after its engagement.
