The state-controlled daily, The Herald, has published pictures of what it says are Wadyajena’s vehicles that were intercepted at a border.
According to tweets from the publication 2 luxury vehicles, a Lamborghini and a BMW were intercepted on suspicion that they were shipped to South Africa.
Claims the Herald:
Busted: Border authorities intercepted two high-end vehicles belonging to Mayor Justice Wadyajena, a embattled lawmaker, on suspicion that they were being shipped to South Africa.
Wadyajena was arrested earlier this week and charged with fraud for money amounting to US$5 million. He was released on ZWL$200k bail a day later in a move seen as part of a routine “Catch and Release” by government critics.
One of the vehicles reported to be intercepted, the yellow Lamborghini, resembles a vehicle that was reported to have been imported a few years ago.
It is not mentioned what would be the reason for shipping the vehicles to South Africa.
Wadyajena is Zanu-PF Gokwe-Nembudziya Member of Parliament. There was no comment from his party on the arrest or the corruption charges.
