A 41-YEAR-OLD Marondera Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) agent is back again at Guruve magistrates’ courts for contempt of court after being convicted of the same charge last year.

On 28 March at around 9am Wachenuka instructed Hare and Last Akimu to dig up the main line water pipes of John Strong farm, Mvurwi, the pipes draw water from the dam through the accused’s farm to the complainant’s farm.
The duo Hare and Akimu complied to Wachenuka’s instruction and left the pipes exposed so that they can hydrants for irrigation purposes.
Wachenuka told Lancerote Kazingizi a security guard at John Strong that he had damaged the main pipe line for them not to access water for irrigation.
On 9 April the complainant made a tour of his water pipe line and discovered that his main line pipes were damaged on two different points, there were two big holed on each pipe.
