HARARE: Former Zanu PF MP Psychology Maziwisa and broadcaster Oscar Pambuka have been convicted of defrauding the Zimbabwe Power Company of $12, 500 in a botched public relations deal.
The duo were convicted this afternoon at a Harare magistrates court.
The two were sentenced to an effective two and half years in Jail.
During Mugabe days, Maziwisa and Pambuka were fraudulently awarded a tender to do public relations work for Zesa Holdings by former Energy minister Samuel Undenge at a time the power utility had its own functional public relations department.
The tender was awarded to their firm Fruitful Communications (Pvt) Ltd.
No public relations work as done.
