Chivayo bribery case court date set for 21 May

In what could be a dead end for the convicted fraudster Wicknell Chivayo, Harare provincial magistrate Mr. Hosea Mujaya has set the 21st May for his trial for bribery.
In court papers, Chivayo allegedly bribed former Zimbabwe Power Company board Chairperson Stanley Kazhanje in an endeavor to get the Gwanda Solar tender. Records narrate that he allegedly transferred $10 000 to Kazhanje towards obtaining the tender
The State had at the beginning dropped the bribery charge when Kazhanje trial commenced.
Following the disclosure by the prosecutor, Mr. Brain Vito that the amalgamation of Chivayo’s case with that of Kazhanje was complete, the magistrate Mujaya set May 21 as the trial date.
The prosecutor also indicated that he would still need some time to serve summons.
