Levy Idana who allegedly defrauded the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development of US$200 000.00 has handed himself to the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC).
Idana was accompanied by his lawyer Arshiel Mugiya of Mugiya Law Chambers and was arrested and charged with fraud.
Idana is accused of making a fraudulent claim for compensation for a property that was affected by the construction of a multi-level interchange at Mbudzi roundabout.
The accused, working in cahoots with Ernest Shenje, the Deputy Director Road Services Division in the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development, who has since been arrested and appeared in court, manufactured a fraudulent agreement of sale.
They misrepresented to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development that Idana was the owner of Subdivision A of Subdivision B of Delft of Hopely which was in the name of John Maloney.
The fraudulent agreement of sale was used to claim compensation on the pretext that Idana had purchased the property from John Maloney.
As a result of this fraudulent claim, Idana was paid US$200 000. He is appearing in court on Tuesday, 6 February, 2024.
