<vote /> Former Transport and Infrastructural Development Deputy Minister Petronella Kagonye had her Ford Ranger vehicle attached over a debt. The incident took place along George Silundika Avenue near Herald House in the morning when an elderly man identified as the politician’s father had parked the vehicle to conduct his business.
Officers from the Messenger of Court parked their Mazda T35 truck immediately behind Ms Kagonye’s maroon Ford Ranger double cab, blocking the way. Kagonye, who is legislator for Goromonzi South, received a donation of two heavy-duty popcorn making machines meant to empower the unemployed youths in the constituency but allegedly kept them to herself. The machines are said to be worth $7 000.
The donor, Mr Takesure Mbano, later learnt that the donation did not reach the intended beneficiaries and claimed the machines back. Kagonye had also received a soft loan of $1 000 from the same businessman but did not pay back in breach of the duo’s agreement. In a bid to recover the cash and the two machines, Mr Mbano successfully sued the politician at the Harare Civil Court.
