As Chivayo Walks Scot Free, ZESA Suspends 8 Workers For Protesting Against Wicknell's Fraud
By Farai D Hove| As if the dishing out of over $5 million to a well known fraudster was not enough, ZESA has added salt to injury by punishing its own workers who protested against the fraud.
The development comes as Chivayo continues to walk scott free despite being liable for imprisonment as the Companiesâ Act dictates.
Chivayo was more than 2 years ago given the $5 million plus lump sum to develop the Gwanda Solar project but to date only a partial fence has been erected, as ZimEye.com revealed earlier this year. ZimEye was first to tour the site in January â" SEE VIDEO:
