HARARE – Land developer Georgios Katsimberis has exposed yet another state capture saying controversial Pokugara Properties Chief Operations Officer and ‘fugitive, land baron’ Kenneth Raydon Sharpe’s runner Tatiana Ellis Aleshina is the grandmother of State Capture amid allegations of a ‘suspicious relationship’ with state prosecutors handling West Properties and Pokugara unending criminal cases before the Courts.
According to an answering affidavit seen by this publication under case number HC3528/21, Katsimberis is seeking a review of a judgment made by Harare Magistrate Letwin Rwodzi after she dismissed an application for referral of his case to the Constitutional Court.
Katsimberis is arguing that he cannot be an accused and witness under the same set of facts.
He says Aleshina has in particular captured acting deputy prosecutor general Michael Reza.
“The prosecutors particularly Michael Reza are in fact hired guns, for Tatiana Aleshina, Kenneth Raydon Sharpe, Aurgur lnvestments OU West Properties and Pokugara Properties. They have in fact captured by the same. They have lost all kind of neutrality and objectivity”, says Katsimberis.
This is not the first time that allegations of State capture have been levelled against Aleshina as Harare North legislator Norman Markham claimed that through her Augur Investments (a company owned by Sharpe) had ‘unleashed a demon of State Capture and extracted so much influence even from the highest office in the land.
Ken Sharpe is currently at large and believed to be hiding in Mauritius but appeared only on social media boasting to be in Zimbabwe, were he is facing a litany of charges before the Courts raging from money laundering, fraud and shoddy land dealings in Harare worthy nearly US$2 billion.
