Former ZANU PF MP Psychology Maziwisa Arrested

Former ZANU PF Member of Parliament for the Highfield West constituency, Psychology Maziwisa, was arrested on Friday.

According to The News Hawks, Maziwisa was arrested after appearing at the High Court to seek an extension of time within which to appeal and condonation of the late filing of the appeal.

His arrest followed the issuance of a warrant of arrest for him by a Harare magistrate.

The magistrate issued the warrant after Maziwisa failed to submit himself to authorities to go to jail to serve 30 months for defrauding the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) of US$12 000 in a corrupt public relations deal.

He was convicted in 2018 with former ZBC presenter Oscar Pambuka for fraud.

Maziwisa and Pambuka were supposed to submit themselves to prison several months ago after their appeal against conviction and sentence was struck off the High Court roll in September last year.

The two were then supposed to go to jail for 30 months but failed to do so.

Pambuka is already serving a two-and-a-half years jail term for the offence after he was committed to prison last week.
