In a move that  has been viewed as a desperate attempt to sing for his next supper, embattled whistleblower William Mutumanje (Acie Lumumba) has called for the immediate release of millionaire Genius Kadungure who is facing charges of tax evasion.

"#freeGinimbi if you are not going to arrest politicians who actually steal from the poor DAILY. What kind of government enjoys impoverishing its people? Until Grace Mugabe and her children are also probed please GTFOH!."Mutumanje lashed out.

Social media users who commented on Mutumanjes statements accused him of being an opportunist who is seeking the attention of Kadungure.

On Friday a Harare Magistrate Bianca Makwande has denied bail to Genius Kadungure saying the decision is based on the interest of justice.

In her ruling latter during the day Mrs Makwande said although the state had consented to granting bail, it would not be in the interest of justice to grant him as he is also facing other cases of fraud.

Kadungure is allegedly in trouble over a suspected $22 million tax fraud scam and other related cases bordering on corruption and fraud.

Another businessman Wicknell Chivayo was picked up by Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) on allegations of bribing Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) chairperson Nyasha Kazhanje with $10 000.

Kazhanje, who is also the director of Terminal Engineers, allegedly received $10 000 from Intratek for showing favour to Chivayo.

He reportedly failed to recuse himself from ZPC meetings where it was resolved not to terminate Intratek's contract but pay its subcontractors despite failing to fulfil its obligation.

Kazhanje has since appeared in court and is currently on remand.
