ZESA top official involved in a fuel scam


ZESA top official involved in a fuel scam. Obson Matunja was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare regional magistrate Tranos Utahwashe. The complainant is ZESA Holdings represented by Sydney Zibuko Gata the Executive Chairman.

ZESA Holdings Head of Group Performance and Audit Obson Matunja yesterday appeared in court charged for theft of trust of property.

Allegations are that from January 2018 to December 2019 Matunja would request for fuel coupons from the management services officer for six pool vehicles under his department and would subsequently issue out the fuel to subordinates on his own.

In the period under review, Matunja was allocated a total of 23 260 litres of fuel to re-allocate to his subordinates, the court heard. Matunja allegedly used a notebook to issue out the fuel and recipients were made to sign in that notebook as confirmation of receipt and would continue to receive fuel for all the pool vehicles even when his subordinates were away on business utilising their Travel and Subsistence to buy fuel.

Matunja’s subordinates did not receive fuel in retrospect when they returned and he took advantage of that and converted the fuel to his own use.

Out of the 23 260 litres of fuel he received, Matunja reportedly only allocated 14 080 litres to his subordinates and converted 9 180 litres worth US$10465 to his own use. He was released on $10 000 bail.
