BREAKING: Oscar Pambuko, Maziwisa sentenced to 6 years

BREAKING: Oscar Pambuko, Maziwisa sentenced to 6 years
Published: 06 December 2018 (366 Views)
Former Highfield Member of Parliament  Psychology Maziwisa and Former ZBC News anchor Oscar Pambuka who were facing two counts of fraud have been found guilty and sentenced to 6 years and 5 months, but will serve 2 years and 6 months each after the rest of the term was conditionally suspended.

The duo duped  Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) of over $12 000 in Public Relation deal.

Maziwisa and Pambuka were believed to have been fraudulently awarded a tender to do public relations work for Zesa Holdings by former Energy minister Samuel Undenge at a time the power utility had its own functional public relations department. The tender was awarded to their firm Fruitful Communications (Pvt) Ltd.


The pair is among several high-profile people, among them former Cabinet ministers, who have been nabbed in the last few months by the anti-graft body as President Emmerson Mnangagwa's administration intensifies its anti-corruption drive.
