ZANU PF’S Manicaland chairman, Mike Madiro, who was suspended from the party over an alleged US$700,000 diamond swindle, has appeared in court charged with stealing cattle donated to President Robert Mugabe.

Madiro and her deputy, Dorothy Mabika, appeared before Mutare provincial magistrate Lucie-Anne Mungwari on Monday accused of not handing over 10 beasts donated by a Chipinge farmer for Mugabe’s birthday celebrations last year.

They were released on US$150 bail and asked to return for trial on April 22.

Prosecutor Jane-Rose Matsikidze said the pair received the 10 herd of cattle from John Chirimambowa at his Middle Sabi farm as a contribution towards Mugabe’s 88th birthday celebrations.

She said the cattle were, however, not handed over the Zanu PF’s 21st February Movement which organises the celebrations.

Mabika is also separately accused of failing to surrender six dairy cattle donated to Zanu PF by another Chipinge farmer, David Hercules Jourbert, in 2011 and altering the minutes of a party meeting to hide the alleged theft.

“Knowing that police were investigating the stock theft case resulting from her receipt of the six cattle as donation to Zanu PF which she stole, the accused altered minutes of the Zanu PF Manicaland provincial executive meeting held on November 21, 2011 to reflect that the said animals had died due to lack of stock feed,” said the prosecutor.

Madiro was suspended from Zanu PF in February, accused – along with four other officials – of swindling more than US$700,000 from diamond companies operating in Marange.

He denies the allegations.

Zanu PF called in the police following claims the officials had collected more than US$700,000 from the diamond miners claiming the money was meant to finance party activities.
