Zimbabwe: Harare Lawyer in Court

The trial of a Harare lawyer accused of conniving with a former workmate to swindle her husband of shares in a security firm, has been set for March 26 this year. Businessman and former Dynamos Football Club secretary Mr Brian Kashangura's wife Gilliet Sarudzai Kashangura, is being charged together with Zvichapera Nyamadzawo for allegedly attempting to strip the former of co-directorship in Brendon Security.

It is alleged the woman replaced her husband with Nyamadzawo and police Assistant Commissioner Erasmus Makodza. Gilliet and Nyamadzawo are out on US$100 bail each.

According to the State, sometime in March last year, Mr Kashangura came up with the idea of forming a company meant to provide security services to private schools and registered Brendon Security on April 7 last year. Sometime in June last year, the State says, Mr Kashangura fell sick and could not attend to his office.

The wife took over and acted in Mr Kashangura's position, attending to all issues, which required his attention hence she was in charge of the safe.
