Businessman Mr James Makamba still has a warrant of arrest hanging around his neck - 13 years after skipping the border over externalisation charges.

The Sunday Mail Business established that the Harare magistrates' court issued a warrant of arrest for Mr Makamba on August 31, 2005.

The Empowerment Corporation chair had failed to attend court to answer six counts of violating the Exchange Control Act.

Makamba fled the country in 2005 and hibernated in South Africa for over a decade, only to resurface in December 2017. A former Zanu-PF central committee member, Mr Makamba has vast business interests in telecommunications, agriculture, retail, mining and digital publishing.

The businessman has not been cleared of illegally dealing in foreign currency under case number CRB 12678-81/04. Approached for comment, Mr Makamba declined to discuss the matter.
