A RUSAPE clerk of court facing allegations of tampering with court records had his freedom bid foiled last Thursday after his bail application was thrown out by Mutare magistrate Tendai Mahwe.

Brit Zambara (35), who is employed by the Judicial Services Commission, appeared before Mahwe denying the allegations, but had his bail application dismissed as the State indicated that investigations into the matter were still in progress.

The matter was remanded to April 26.

The complainant in the matter is Manicaland provincial magistrate Sekai Chiundura.

According to the State, between 2013 and 2017, due to the shortage of manpower, Zambara was assigned additional accounting duties, which included receipting of payments by litigants.




According to the State, on February 2, 2014, a motorist Michael Kunaka appeared before a Rusape magistrate facing culpable homicide charges and was ordered to pay a fine of $700 or alternatively spend 55 days in prison.

Kunaka allegedly paid the fine to the accused person, who was at the accounts desk.

Zambara reportedly did not receipt the money and instead erased Kunaka's name from the index book and replace it with a fictitious one, Maideu Chiwaka.

The accused also allegedly altered the court record book number by removing pages with court record book numbers R436 to 455/13, including that of Kunaka in order to cover up for the offence.
