Munyaradzi Kereke was allowed home visits at weekends to enjoy conjugal rights, it was revealed in court.

It is also alleged that ZPCS Commissioner-General Retired Major-General Paradzai Zimondi wrote to the correctional services prison managers to engage Kereke, so that he would provide expertise on projects, finance and economic planning as well as other social welfare support initiatives.

This emerged during the trial of former Chikurubi Maximum Prison officer-in-charge Nobert Chomurenga and his then juniors, Cephas Chiparausha and Tonderai Mutiwaringa.

Chomurenga, Chiparausha and Mutiwaringa are being charged with corruptly concealing a transaction from a principal.  The trio is denying the charges.

But Oscar Gasva, ZPCS’s Acting director legal services Willie Risiro said all never happened as alleged.
