Former ZBC boss Muchechetere quizzed


Former Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation chief executive Happison Muchechetere, who was suspended last year pending investigations, was questioned by police today on allegations of inflating the price of an Outside Broadcast van. According to The Herald, the van which was purchased from China National Instruments Imports and Exports Corporation (Instrimpex) was supposed to cost only US$100 000.but Muchechetere and Instrimpex connived to inflate the price to US$1 050 000. Muchechetere was questioned by the CID Serious Frauds section but police refused to give details only saying this was related to tender procedures and the OB van. Police said they had recorded a warned and cautioned statement and released Muchechetere. The former ZBC boss was suspended after it emerged that he was earning close to US$40 000 a month in a package that included US$3 000 entertainment allowance, a US$2 500 allowance to pay his domestic workers, US$3 500 housing allowance and US$3 000 as a general allowance.
