FORMER First Lady Grace Mugabe’s son, Russell Goreraza, was yesterday remanded in custody at the Concession Magistrates Courts on charges of stealing gold processing equipment at Tian Bao Mineral Industry in Mazowe.

Goreraza (37) appeared before magistrate Moreblessing Makati together with his accomplices, Paul Sithole (45), Aaron Muchenje (31) and Trymore Madzitire (36).

The four were remanded in custody to today for bail ruling.

Goreraza is Grace’s son from her previous marriage.

The complainant in the matter is Prince Danda of Number 9 Calgary Farm, Mazowe, who is employed by Tian Bao Mineral Industry (Pvt) Ltd as managing director.

Allegations are that on April 10 this year at around 7am at Tian Bao Mineral Industry (Pvt) Ltd Smithfield Farm, Mazowe Farm owned by the late former President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace, Sithole, Muchenje and Madzitire dismantled a processing plant under the instructions of Goreraza.

The trio then loaded a gold smelter, ball mill, electric motor, approximately 200 ball mill metal balls, 50 ball mill liners, 20 slay pumps and 15 angle iron bars into a truck using a crane.

They were intercepted by Mazowe police and arrested.

The value of the stolen property is US$130 0000 and only property worth US$30 0000 was recovered.
The four men, including Grace Mugabe’s son, were not asked to plead.

Prince Danda, described as the managing director of Tian Bao Mineral Industry, is the complainant.

In 2019, the government issued a memorandum inviting miners to show interest in mining activities on 10 farms in the Mashonaland Central province, including Foyle and Smithfield owned by the former First Family, the Mugabes.

The Mugabes have since the demise of the veteran leader been fighting against losing land. They even lost a number of lawsuits.

Rosslyn Maurayi prosecuted. ■
