By A Correspondent- The suspended ZBC Acting CEO, Wisdom Hombarume has been accused of allegedly masquerading as an engineer after obtaining qualifications from an unaccredited institution.

The matter was revealed in court proceedings in which Hombarume is challenging the suspension of payment of his salary and benefits by the national broadcaster.

He was suspended in July last year after being arrested on allegations of fraud involving a business trip to Botswana. His salary and benefits were suspended after the emergence of reports that he had attained qualifications from an unaccredited institution.

The Zimbabwe Council of Higher Education (ZIMCHE), says the University from which Hombarume allegedly obtained his qualifications is not recognised in Zimbabwe.

Hombarume however argued through his lawyer Josias Mandevere that the suspension of his salary and benefits is illegal since it was a different case.

ZBC, represented by Scanleen and Holderness, argued that the move was based on a new matter of misrepresentation regarding his qualifications.

Mr Evans Moyo who is representing ZBC argued that Hombarume approached the court with material non-disclosure as he did not give the court full details on why his salary and benefits were suspended.

High Court Judge Justice David Mangota is expected to rule on the matter on Tuesday next week.-statemedia
