KAPOKO’S FORMER LOVER SUES ACC OVER HER ASSETS

By GRACE CHAILE LESOETSA

INCARCERATED Henry Kapoko’s former lover Rudo Tukuza Chitengu has petitioned the Constitutional Court to order the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to surrender her assets under its seizure.

Ms Chitengu in her petition stated, that in 2003 she was in a relationship with former Ministry of Health Chief Human Resource Development Officer and a child was born from them on August 23, 2007. She said in 2009 when Kapoko was indicted of money laundering, her assets were frozen by the mere fact that she had a child with him.

Ms Chitengu wants the notice of seizure dated December 8, 2017 declared null and void. She is seeking a declaration that the assets, goods, items and money listed in the notice of seizure belong to her. She also wants an order for damages for deprivation of the use of the assets, goods, items and money which are the subject of the notice of seizure.

The petitioner wants an order compelling ACC to release all the assets,goods, items and money under the seizure. She has cited ACC as the respondent in the matter.
