They were sentenced to 10 years in jail, each, but three years was suspended. Chikumba (60) and Pfumbidzayi (50) were convicted of breaking all company procedures by suddenly appointing Navistar Insurance Brokers as company insurer in 2009 without going to tender. Previously Air Zimbabwe was insured by Marsh Insurance Brokers. After the shift Air Zimbabwe started paying out $317 000 per quarter, instead of $132 000 per annum.
