JAMES MAKAMBA FACES ARREST AS OLD SKELETONS TUMBLE OUT OF HIS CLOSET
Businessman Mr James Makamba is still facing arrest 13 years after skipping the border over externalization charges.
It is reported that the Harare magistrates’ court issued a warrant of arrest for Mr Makamba on August 31, 2005. The Empowerment Corporation chair had failed to attend court to answer six counts of violating the Exchange Control Act.
Mr Makamba fled the country in 2005 and hibernated in South Africa for over a decade, only to resurface in December 2017.
The businessman has not been cleared of illegally dealing in foreign currency under case number CRB 12678-81/04. Approached for comment, Mr Makamba declined to discuss the matter.
“I have been misquoted a lot of times and I am not ready to comment over the phone. I prefer face to face,” he said.
He has since not committed to a meeting.
