BOND COINS DRIVER IN COURT | The driver who posted on social media the bond coins
invoice has appeared in court charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act.
Tinash Sikwila of Prestige Carriers, contracted to transport boxes of bond coins into Zim, was not asked to plead when he appeared before magistrate, Josephine Sande, who remanded him in custody to today for bail ruling.
The court heard that during the collection of the bond coins from South Africa Mint, where they were minted, Sikwila allegedly took a photograph of the invoice dated September 20 this year and sent it to a South african number owned by a Calisto.
On the same day, the invoice showing the amount of bond coins en-route to Zimbabwe was allegedly circulated on social media platforms, thereby, discrediting the security of the escort team and Zimbabwean government.
