BUSI­NESS­MAN Ge­nius Kadun­gure yes­ter­day suc­cess­fully ap­plied for the re­lease of his pass­port to en­able him to travel to Dubai for busi­ness.

Harare mag­is­trate Rumbidzai Mug­wagwa granted the re­lease of his pass­port from Jan­uary 6 to Jan­uary 10, 2019.

Kadun­gure, through his lawyer Mr Jonathan Sa­mukange, pleaded with the court for the re­lease of the pass­port.

“As we all know your wor­ship that the coun­try is cur­rently hav­ing a gas prob­lem and the ac­cused is a busi­ness­man who spe­cialises in gas, so there is need for him to go and do busi­ness,” said Mr Sa­mukange.

Prose­cu­tor Mr Shep­herd Makonde did not op­pose the ap­pli­ca­tion, but said the State should be given Kadun­gure’s ti­tle deeds as surety that he is not ab­scond­ing from trial.

Kadun­gure re­port­edly im­ported gas from South Africa and Botswana without pay­ing tax to the Zim­babwe Rev­enue Au­thor­ity (Zimra).
