CIO spy charged with extorting $15k from businessman, locked up

A HARARE man appeared in court Monday charged with extorting $15 000 from a businessman whom he told that he was being investigated by the police for ‘spying’.

Delish Nguwaya, who is said to be a Central Intelligence Organisation officer, purportedly told Bruce Michael Blake that investigations against him would be stopped if he paid the said money.

According to the state, Nguwaya’s car was also searched and a sachet containing cocaine was found.

He was denied bail after magistrate Barbra Chimboza ruled that there was overwhelming evidence against him and he has three similar cases pending before the courts.

Chimboza also said Nguwaya was caught with trap money when he was arrested.

Nguwaya is facing charges of extortion and possession of cocaine.

He is represented by his lawyers, Admire Rubaya and Oliver Marwa.

Allegations against Nguwaya arose early this month when he allegedly demanded the money from Blake.

It is alleged that Nguwaya told Blake that he was being investigated on allegations of being a spy and then demanded $15 000 saying the investigations against him (Blake) would be dropped.

Nguwaya kept on pestering Blake prompting him to make a police report, the court heard.

Police officers from CID drugs set a trap and, according to the State, Nguwaya was arrested after receiving the trap money.

The court heard that Nguwaya’s vehicle was searched and a khaki envelope was discovered from underneath the driver’s seat containing cocaine.

The State alleges that Nguwaya was also found in possession of a pill called sildenafil which is acquired only with a prescription from a doctor and Nguwaya did not have that prescription.
