Bailed after corruption arrest ... Reward Kangai

FORMER NetOne CEO Reward Kangai has hit out at the company and the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZAAC) following his arrest for sleaze at the State-owned mobile phone company.

He was released Thursday by a Harare court on $800 bail.

ZAAC officers had arrested him a day earlier for criminal abuse of office.

However, appearing before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa, Kangai accused NetOne of concealing documents which he claimed could have been helpful in the case.

“The accused was arrested by ZACC to which he gave them all the detailed information regards the matter,” said defence lawyer Nyasha Munetsi while challenging the legality of his client’s arrest.

“NetOne has however, concealed all the relevant documents from the investigation officer. ZACC was obliged to follow up and investigate but none of that transpired.”

Through his lawyer, Kangai also accused ZACC of shoddy job and unlawfully arresting him after the agency allegedly failed to investigate and follow up on his allegations.

According to court papers, Kangai is facing 21 counts of criminal abuse of office after he allegedly awarded tenders for base stations to a company called Bopela.

Prosecutors further claim that sometime in 2014 the then CEO corruptly sanctioned payment of rentals in advance to four landlords who are alleged to be his relatives without authorisation and approval of the NetOne board.
