<vote /> A ZESA Holdings employee has been arrested together with his friend on allegations of fraud after they reportedly demanded a $1 000 kickback from a businesswoman in return for restoring power to her business premises.

The complainant, who is the director of Sorellas Pizzeria and Café, experienced a power outage at her restaurant in Harare’s Ballantyne Park suburb. Other business tenants in the same premises were also affected by the power cut.

Darryn Blumears, who resides in the same area, was aware of the fault and allegedly advised the complainant that he had a friend employed by ZESA who could fix the problem for them. He then sought the services of Eugine Chikepe, a technician stationed at Mabvuku depot. Blumears and Chikepe appeared before Mr Tendai Mahwe charged with two counts of fraud. They were released on $50 bail each, coupled with some conditions among them reporting once a week to the police and not to interfere with witnesses.
