Outcry As Mike Chimombe Gets Acquitted While Wiwa Rots In Prison

Crimes and Courts Politics

There was an outcry across social media platforms following news that flamboyant businessman Mike Chimombe was acquitted of a fraud charge.


Chimombe appeared before the courts on allegations of defrauding a Harare man of US$16,500 in a botched residential stand deal.

Social media users could not stomach the news of his release when opposition party, Citizens Coalition for Change member Job Sikhala is rotting in jail after his sixth bail denial by the courts.

It defies logic and the whole of my Theology. This is a solid proof that our Judiciary system is so inexplicable. Chimombe was arrested last month and I shudder to imagine that his trial and judgement was so quick, leading to his acquital whereas Job Sikhala is rotting in maximum prison for almost 6 solid months without even a single trial..

Meanwhile, Chimombe was in the eye of an adultery scandal after he impregnated his wife’s little sister. Chimombe, who is married to Mitchell, was said to have impregnated his wife’s sister, Panashe Rusero.
The 40-year-old’s shenanigans with his sister-in-law were exposed after Panashe hosted a baby shower where the two appeared cosy together.
A source close to the family confirmed the illicit affair to a local tabloid. The source said the family had tried to intervene to stop the affair earlier after noting something untoward between the two.
