MASVINGO – Prominent local lawyer, Foroma Chakabuda is in trouble with the law after he allegedly misrepresented facts and referred a resident to a fake lawyer.
Chakabuda has already appeared at the Masvingo Magistrates’ Court twice and his case has now been postponed to October 02 when two witnesses are expected to testify.
State facts, as being argued by Richard Nyamuomba, are that on the April 23, 2019, at Mucheke Bus Terminus, Tranos Chihanga and Chakabuda made a misrepresentation to Tasarawo Tasisio Mandava that Chihanga was a legal practitioner.
Mandava, who is former Masvingo Urban Ward 1 councillor, then paid Chihanga RTGS$540 as payment for legal representation in a civil case but later realised that he had been duped.
Chakabuda is denying ever referring Mandava to Chihanga.
