Minister Chitando was yesterday found in contempt of the High Court and sentenced to 90 days in prison. However, High Court judge, Justice David Mangota gave the minister seven days to comply, failure of which he will serve the full jail term.
The court ordered the minister to ensure the transfer of ownership of some mining claims from North Rand into the name of RioZim, but he did not comply.
Below are the full court documents as first shared by Professor Jonathan Moyo.
Folks worry not about the date that appears to be 13th February 2019. The order was granted today (this afternoon). So the handwritten date is correct regarding the date, and month but not regarding the year (in print) which is when the case was filed! pic.twitter.com/UyFRIBZ50D
