Former Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Mavhura and former Director of Human Resources and Administration, Benania Shumba have been remanded in custody, pending bail application on Monday.

The two appeared in court this Saturday, facing allegations of fraud.

Mavhura was arrested on Thursday evening, while Shumba was picked up this Friday on allegations of siphoning more than US$340 000 from the national broadcaster.

Mavhura allegedly purchased a house in Borrowdale, vehicles and other valuables using funds siphoned from advertisers.

Mavhura and Shumba’s contracts were terminated early this month following the appointment of the new ZBC board.
