    MVUMA –
      A man from Mvuma is in court on allegations of duping a client who wanted to buy a piece of land for $1 900. The accused has been ordered to come back to court today (September 22, 2016) for judgment.
    It is the State case that on an date unknown but in November 2014, Nyasha Nhambare was looking for a plot to buy in Mvuma.
    He met Enock Nezungai who took him to Mvuma Lands Office but he was left outside the offices.
    Nezungai came out of the office and referred Nhambare to Piki Mutero who is the Village Chairman.
    Mutero showed Nhambare a 50 hectare plot that was going for $1500 and was asked to pay the money to Mutero since he was the chairman.
    On December 9, Nhambare paid his first instalment of $1 200 to Mutero and Nezungai witnessed the transaction. Nhambare was promised a receipt as proof of payment and an offer letter in respect of the plot after he paid the balance of $300.
    In February 2015, Nhambare paid the remaining $300 and he told Mutero that he wanted to assume occupation. Mutero told Nhambare that he was supposed to pay another $400 which was to be paid to Mvuma Council as monthly rentals from 2010 to 2015 which Nhambare complied to and paid.
    Nhambare then asked Mutero for receipts and an offer letter but he was given false promises.
    He became suspicious, until he visited the plot he had paid for and discovered someone had already occupied it. He proceeded to Mvuma Lands Office to ascertain if the accused person made transactions as required by the Council if there is any paper work processed thereto, to which he was told that the plot was sold but nothing was remitted to Mvuma Lands Office.
    Nhambare then discovered that he was duped and made Police report. Nothing was recovered.
