FORMER Gweru Town Clerk, Daniel Matawu has been arrested on allegations of fraud emanating from the illegal subdivision and sale stands from reserved State land.
This is the second time that Matawu has been arrested on graft charges, after he was nabbed last year for corruption involving stands worth more than US$78 000 which were illegally sold without following proper procedures.
In the latest case it is alleged that the former Town Clerk prejudiced Gweru City Council of US$120 000.
Posting on their Twitter account, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission revealed that Matawu was granted $10 000 bail with the matter remanded to 1 October 2021.
