Taibu - facing assault charges.

Zimbabwe Cricket has been ordered to open its books following claims by former national captain Tatenda Taibu that assault charges he is facing are a part of a strategy to silence him for questioning the management of funds.Taibu appeared in a Harare court Thursday on charges of assaulting ZC finance manager Esther Lupepe in September over outstanding payments owed to him. Taibu said the charges are meant to embarrass and punish him for his criticism of the board.The court ordered ZC to submit documents showing its payroll, sponsorship deals and grants from the International Cricket Council.The 25-year-old Taibu said he had raised concern over the handling of board funds, dubious employment of staff members and poor remuneration of players just a few days before he was arrested on the 30th of September.
