Opposition LEAD president Linda Masarira was on Thursday appeared before a Harare magistrate facing theft of trust property charges.
Masarira (38) allegedly sold her landlord’s property worth US$3 140 before converting the money to her own use.
She appeared before Harare magistrate Richard Mangosi who remanded her out of custody on free bail.
Mangosi deferred the matter to 7 April.
The State alleged that sometime in January 2018 Lawrence Madamombe, the landlord, left his property in Masasrira’s custody at his place of residence in Marlborough.
When he went to collect his property from Masarira later that year he realised that the property was missing.
It was further alleged that upon inquiring from Masarira, Madamombe discovered that she had sold his property and converted the money to her own use.
