Former Transport and Infrastructural Development Deputy Minister Petronella Kagonye, who had her Ford Ranger vehicle attached over a debt last Tuesday, regained possession of the vehicle under unclear circumstances on Wednesday, only to be served with a court order to return the vehicle the following day.
Takesure Mbano contested an ex parte petition for order of release that had been granted on Wednesday without his consent.
Upon seeing Kagonye’s vehicle being released, a court official contacted Mbano to inform him on the latest developments.
Mbano then wrote a letter to Chief Magistrate Mr Mishrod Guvamombe, which he copied to Acting President Emmerson Mnangagwa as Minister of Justice and the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission, requesting intervention.
“I suspect she now has acted in cahoots with court officials to obtain an order releasing the attached motor vehicle on exparte basis . . . I kindly request that your honourable office influences to stop this corruption between Kagonye and the concerned magistrate where she bribed him with some money today for the release of the car,” Mbano wrote in
