ZIMDANCEHALL chanter, Tawanda Madondo, popularly known as Mbida D, has been acquitted of fraud.

Madondo was acquitted by Harare magistrate Ms Jacqueline Gara after the State failed to prove its case against him.

He was accused of absconding from performing at a public show where he was hired.

The complainant is Mr Benjamin Gororo.

The State alleged that on March 20, Madondo agreed to perform at Mr Gororo’s nite club on March 30.

He was allegedly paid a deposit of US$100 on the understanding that the balance would be paid after the show. Madondo allegedly failed to show up on the agreed date, and became evasive.

He was arrested on April 25, after the police received a tip-off about his whereabouts.

Madondo was represented by his lawyer Mr Dumisani Mthombeni.
