Bindura Mayor Jacob Gwature Nabbed For Fraud!

Bindura Mayor Jacob Gwature, who was arrested for fraud and spent the weekend in Harare Remand Prison, is due back in court today to file his bail application.

Over the weekend, Gwature and his accomplice, Jonathan Kapasvi, appeared before judge Sandra Mupindu.

Misheck Mambo represents the complaint, Kitchen Table Charities Trust, which is situated in the United Kingdom.

Mambo works with Hope for Kids Zimbabwe, which is part of the Kitchen Charities Trust.

The court heard that Kapasvi and Gwature conspired to loot the organisation in January 2021.

The duo allegedly misrepresented to Kitchen Table Charities that they were running a Non-Governmental Organisation called ‘Pamhodzi Rainbow Network,’ whose business was centred on humanitarian assistance.

They misrepresented that they wanted to drill a borehole and install a solar system to power the borehole at Stand 1305 in Budiriro 1, Harare.

Convinced, Kitchen Table Charities gave the duo 5 000 British pounds, which was equivalent to US$6970, through Inward Telex payment.

The money went into Pamhodzi Rainbow Network’s bank account.

Kitchen Table Charities later made a follow up to check progress on the project and found out that the borehole was not sunk.

The matter was reported to the police leading to the duo’s arrest.

Zvikomborero Mupasa prosecuted.
