High Court clears charges against Obadiah Moyo

HIGH Court on Thursday dismissed charges against former Health Minister Dr Obadiah Moyo, arrested in June last year for awarding US$60m contracts to Drax International without following tender process.

Justice Kwenda said charges did not disclose elements that constitute an offence

Former health minister was being charged with criminal abuse of office over the alleged awarding of a $60m contract for Covid-19 supplies.

He was sacked by Emmerson Mnangagwa for inappropriate conduct by a public official.

According to court papers then, Moyo allegedly awarded a multimillion tender to Drax International LLC, headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, which was concluded without the consent of the Procurement Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe.

A representative of Drax, Delish Nguwaya, is also facing charges in connection with the contract and is on bail.
