Former Zimbabwe Power Company Board Chair, Kazhanje has been sentenced to three years in prison after being convicted of accepting a US$10 000 bribe from ex-convict and Managing Director of Intratek Zimbabwe, Wicknell Chivhayo.

The bribe is alleged to be Chivhayo’s way to influence Kazhanje’s decisions in the Gwanda multimillion-dollar Solar project which is yet to commence since 2016.

Kazhanje will, however, spend only one year in jail after two years were suspended on condition of good behaviour.
