Zimbabwe's High Court will tomorrow rule on an application seeking the induction of Mines and Mining Development minister Obert Mpofu on contempt charges and forcing him to register a tribute agreement of a man claiming 50% ownership of a Shamva quarry.




Base minerals and Chiroswa Minerals shareholder Peter Valentine has asked the High Court to charge Mpofu with contempt of court for failing to register his mining lease as instructed by High Court judge Bharat Patel in a 2011 ruling.

If convicted, Mpofu faces a jail sentence of up to one month and possible disqualification from public office, which would in turn spur his resignation as minister.
