Bulawayo 'land baron' out on bail
Published: 26 September 2018 (44 Views)
Bulawayo man who allegedly faked ownership of stands and conned four people out of $11 517 was last week granted $150 bail and remanded to October 4 for trial.

Hillary Mhindurwa, represented by Bruce Masamvu, was not asked to plead when he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Tinashe Tashaya. He was also ordered to report once every fortnight at Nkulumane Police Station as part of his bail conditions.

The court heard that on May 17, 2017 while at the Centenary Building in Bulawayo, Mhindurwa allegedly misrepresented to George Matenga that he was the owner of stand number 341, Emganwini West and he was selling it. He allegedly received $1 992 for the stand from Matenga.

On the same day, he also allegedly misrepresented to Tongai Tawanda Nyandoro that he was the owner of stand number 336, Emganwini West in Bulawayo indicating that he was selling it. He received $2 525 from Nyandoro towards purchase of the stand.

It is the State's case that on the same day, Mhindurwa also allegedly misrepresented to Artwell Ndlovu that he owned stand number 278, Emganwini West, Bulawayo and was selling it. He then received $3 500 for the stand from Ndlovu.

In the last count, Mhindurwa allegedly misrepresented to Fortwel Ndlovu that he owned stand number 188, Emganwini West in Bulawayo and he was selling it. He then received $3 500 towards the purchase of the stand.

His victims later discovered that the stands in question did not belong to Mhindurwa. They made reports to the police, leading to his arrest.

No money was recovered.
