EMBATTLED Mutare town clerk Joshua Maligwa is alleged to have offered residential stands to the police to seek protection ahead of investigations into an alleged massive land scandal at the local authority.
In a leaked document, Maligwa and councillors, who are facing serious corruption allegations resolved to offer the land to a number of senior police officers, a move that has been viewed by observers as meant to buy his protection.
A source at Mutare Central Police Station told NewsDay this week that they were investigating a case where Maligwa is an accused.
“We are investigating a case where the town clerk is the accused and other cases he is the complainant. There are war veterans who reported him over corruption,” the source said.
