Russell Goreraza, who is former First Lady Grace Mugabe’s son, was granted bail yesterday at Concession Magistrates Court.

Goreraza (37) was arrested together with his accomplices, Paul Sithole (45), Aaron Muchenje (31), and Trymore Madzitire (36).

Goreraza is the former first lady’s son from her first marriage and he went before Concession magistrate Moreblessing Makati after being charged of stealing gold processing equipment at Tian Bao Mineral Industry in Mazowe

ZimCitizen reported that Goreraza and his co-accused were granted $20 000 bail each.

The quartet was demanded to surrender their passports, report every Friday at Borrowdale CID, and not interfere with State witnesses as part of their bail condition.

They were remanded to April 28 and the case will continue at the Bindura Magistrates Court

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

Tian Bao Mineral Industry belongs to the late former President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace.

Allegations are that on April 10 this year at around 7 AM, Sithole, Muchenje, and Madzitire dismantled a processing plant at Tian Bao Mineral Industry (Pvt) Ltd Smithfield Farm following 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.

However, all their plans went to nothing when they were intercepted by the Mazowe police. Upon being asked about the possession of the stolen mining equipment, the trio implicated Goreraza.

After this information was given, the police apprehended the former first lady’s son and charged him together with Muchenje, Madzitire, and Sithole.

The value of the stolen property is US$130 0000 and only property worth US$30 0000 was recovered.
