Muchechetere to go on trial in five weeks


The trial of former Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation boss Happison Muchechetere was today set for 24 June, five weeks from now. Although Muchechetere hit the headlines last November over his salary put at about US$40 000 a month, he won’t be answering for his hefty salary which has since been overshadowed by that of Premier Services Medical Aid Society boss Cuthbert Dube which was more than 10 times that of Muchechetere. He is, instead, facing trial for fraud. Muchechetere is alleged to have inflated the price of an Outside Broadcasting Van (OBV) which he bought for the ZBC last year, prejudicing the national broadcaster of US$800 000. Dube was the chairman of the ZBC board at the time of the alleged offences.
