Former First Lady Grace Mugabe’s Russell Goreraza (37), son was granted $20 000 bail at Concession Magistrates’ Court on theft charges after ordering the removal of gold processing plant worth US$130 000 at Tian Bao Mineral Industry in Mazowe.

Goreraza appeared before Concession magistrate Moreblessing Makate together with his co-accused Paul Sithole (45), Aaron Muchenje (31) and Trymore Madzitire (36).

Goreraza and his co-accused were ordered to surrender their passports, report every Friday at Borrowdale CID and not to interfere with state witnesses.

They were remanded to April 28 at the Bindura Magistrates’ Court.

The complainant is Mr Prince Danda (51) of number 9 Calgary Farm, Mazowe and is the managing director of Tian Bao mineral Industry (Pvt) Ltd.

Prosecutor Roselyn Maurayi told the court that on April 10 at around 7am, Sithole, Muchenje and Madzitire went to Tian Bao mineral Industry (Pvt) Ltd Smithfield Farm in Mazowe.

The farm is owned by the former first family.

The trio allegedly dismantled a processing plant with the instruction of Goreraza.

Russell has been in the public light for a number of controversies which include allegedly grabbing mines, grabbing houses.

He was once convicted of culpable homicide, for which he paid an $800 fine after he had killed an unidentified man in a road traffic accident.
