Guruve Rural District Council chief executive officer Tinos Marisa was arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission on Friday over allegations of corruptly allocating stands.
He appeared before Guruve magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa yesterday and was remanded to June 10 on $10 000 bail.
The state alleges that Marisa corruptly authorised the sale of stands in Guruve from 2016 to 2020.
In an unrelated case, a Mushumbi man has been given the mandatory nine-year jail term for possession of ivory.
Bavalo Masvisva was convicted by Guruve magistrate Geraldine Mutsotso.
According to state papers, sometime in October last year, ZimParks officials and the police received a tip-off that Masvisva had five pairs of ivory that he was selling.
The team purported to be buyers and arrested him.
