Opposition politician Linda Masarira (38) appeared in court Thursday facing allegations of selling her Landlord’s property worth US$3 140 before converting the money to her own use said she was wrongfully accused.
“I am wrongfully accused in this matter,” she said.
“The person who stole some of the things on the docket is my son during the time he was battling with drug addiction.”
“He even advised the police likewise who refused to change the docket. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper.”
“Some were not stolen at all”
Masarira appeared before Harare Magistrate Mr Richard Mangosi and was remanded out of custody on free bail.
Mangosi deferred the matter to April 7.
The court heard that sometime in January 2018 Lawrence Madamombe, the landlord, left his property in Masarira’s custody at his place of residence in Marlborough.
It is alleged that when Madamombe went to collect his property from Masarira later that year he realised that the property was missing.
The court heard that upon inquiring from Masarira, Madamombe discovered that she had sold his property and converted the money to her own use.
