CONTROVERSY continues to follow disgraced top Bulawayo lawyer Sindiso Mazibisa after he once again appeared before the courts facing theft charges.

Barely three months back, Mazibisa had his practicing licence withdrawn by the Law Society of Zimbabwe after his law firm, Cheda and Partners, where he was managing partner, was forced to shut down for alleged abuse of trust funds.

On Thursday, Mazibisa appeared before Bulawayo senior regional magistrate Trynos Utawashe, facing theft of property charges.

Mazibisa, who is out on free bail, will report back on August 25.

According to the state outline, on February 8 2013, Titus Ncube, a director at South West Gold Private limited, entered into an agreement with one Henrietta Gugulethu Dube to purchase 36 percent shares valued at $400,000 at Chakata Resources Zimbabwe, a mining company based in Matobo.

In the deal, Mazibisa, who was the agent, drafted a Memorandum of Agreement of the sale of shares and the two parties agreed that the purchase money would be deposited into Mazibisa’s account pending finalisation of the sale.

Three months later, Ncube transferred $335 536, 55 to Mazibisa’s Trust account for the purchase of the shares.

During the period extending from May 19 to June 17 in the same year, Mazibisa, in violation of a trust agreement with Ncube, allegedly withdrew various amounts from the Trust account and converted the cash to his personal use, fully aware that the funds were held pending finalisation of the sale of property.

After the deal failed to materialise, Ncube withdrew from the agreement and demanded that Mazibisa reimburse him his money.

Mazibisa however, failed to return the money, in the process prejudicing Ncube of $335 536, 55.
