MASVINGO – Bishop Jeremiah Matenhese’s fraud case which was supposed to be held on October 10 this week has been postponed again to the 24th of October 2023.
Bishop Matenhese, who runs Polka Executor Services is facing charges of fraud after he allegedly forged signatures for the estate of the late transport mogul, Tanda Tavarura aka Mhunga. However, the case has been dragging on since the beginning of the year.
Mhunga family lawyer, Beatrice Mtetwa told this publication that the family has since lodged a complaint with the Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs for unfair treatment that they have been getting from the Master of the Hugh Court.
“The Tanda Tavarura family filed a complaint to the Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs of the unfair treatment they are getting from the Master of High Court,” said Mtetwa.
The Mhunga family is set to lose millions worth of properties after Bishop Matenhese allegedly forged his signature on Tavarura Trust property claiming that the deceased left everything in his name.
Mhunga was a prominent businessman and transport operator who died in 2020 in Masvingo and he left behind six children and a wife.
