Zimbabwe’s Former Minister Arrested for Stealing Cattle

Former Zimbabwean minister was arrested in Bindura in central Mashonaland province on charges of stealing cattle worth US$18 000.

Nicholas Goche, Former Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development, is facing theft accusations after his arrest during the week.

Honest Mupanedengu, a farmer in Shamva, said Goche failed to surrender 18 heifers, according to a purchase agreement.

Mupanedengu said Goche sold him 40 heifers Nov. 13, 2018. He collected 22 heifers after the first payment was made through a bank transfer.

But the complainant said Mupanedengu was supposed to collect the remaining 18 heifers at a later date.

The former minister, however, sold the 18 heifers without Mupanedengu‘s knowledge.

When Mupanedengu approached Goche to collect the remaining heifers, he was told that they had already been sold.

The cattle were estimated at $18,000, and nothing has been recovered.
