Charles Chinyama is a Zimbabwean lawyer.
He was cleared of defamation charges in August 2011 after the State failed to try him within reasonable time. Chinyama is alleged to have called Harare businessman Paul Westwood a self-confessed drug addict. Westwood was testifying in the case in which businessman Temba Mliswa was accused of seizing US$1 million worth of shareholding in Noshio Investments.
In April 2002, Chinyama appeared before magistrate Mrs Joyce Negonde on allegations of defrauding a Bulawayo man, Mr Edson Kanda, a senior accounts clerk at the National Railways of Zimbabwe of $260 000. He was remanded out of custody to May 7 2002 on $5 000 bail. Some time in February 2001, Chinyama purchased a fax machine from Kanda. The two, according to the State, agreed on a price of $260 000 and Chinyama offered to make a down payment of $100 000.
