Trial Deferred for Nyandoro in Theft of Trust Property Case Amidst Settlement Attempt Controversy

Businessman Ronald Nyandoro, facing theft of trust property charges, has had his trial deferred to April 10 due to his lawyer, Mr. Admire Rubaya’s engagement at the High Court. The delay came just as the second witness was set to testify today.

At the previous hearing, Mr. Rubaya informed the court that the complainant, James Landon, attempted to initiate an out-of-court settlement with his client moments before the trial was scheduled to begin.

During cross-examination, Rubaya questioned Landon about his last-minute attempt at settlement, suggesting that Landon handed over the vehicle to Nyandoro at Me Logan’s residence, contrary to Landon’s claim that it was handed over at his own home in Borrowdale Brooke.

Rubaya accused Landon of misusing the criminal justice system by filing a theft of trust property report against Nyandoro, alleging that Landon gave Nyandoro a motor vehicle as payment for services rendered after Nyandoro failed to pay his consultation fees.

Landon contends that the Toyota Landcruiser AET 3438 was meant to be returned to him after a period of time, but Nyandoro, represented by Rubaya, denied that there was any trust agreement in place as claimed by Landon.

Nyandoro asserted that he received the car as payment for services rendered during a time when Landon was embroiled in a dispute with another businessman, Adam Woodington, which led to Landon’s arrestHome – ZiMetro News
