Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has continued his onslaught against Billy Rautenbach by calling for an investigation into the businessman’s alleged ownership of Aspindale stands.
Rautenbach has been fighting various cooperatives in Aspindale 48&49 of Kambuzuma alleging that he owns the stands.
Mliswa has however opposed the move, supporting the residents by accusing the white businessman of forging papers and corruptly working with some ZANU PF leaders.
In a letter to Local Government Minister July Moyo, Mliswa says there are criminal elements to the matter which should be pursued.
“I verily aver that the criminal connotations in this matter are too compelling to be ignored, hence my request for your good office to conduct a grand scale investigation into the ownership merits thereof once and for all”.
Rautenbach, through his company Marimba Properties, has been threatening residents in Aspindale with evictions if they do not buy the stands from him for US$85 per square metre.
Previously some of the residents have been arrested and beaten by ZRP police working in cahoots with Rautenbach.
Mliswa has previously accused Rautenbach of working corruptly with Ministers July Moyo and Oliver Chidawu.
