GWERU – A man who is prominent for repairing cellphones at Bahudur Center in Gweru is on the run after he allegedly duped two Police officers and a nurse of a total of $17 000.
Mbonisi Sibanda of Kopje Suburb in Gweru is facing four counts of theft in which he conned three women.
The accused was issued with a warrant of arrest by Magistrate Phathekile Msipa after he skipped court on the day he was supposed to get judgment. He had all along attended the three different court cases which ran concurrently.
It is the State's case that Sibanda conned Christine Matare and Perpetual Shumba both stationed at Gweru Traffic and Shylet Chinyakuze, a nurse at Shurugwi Hospital. 
On count one in August last year, Matare who resides at Mtapa Camp approached Sibanda and asked him to purchase a Honda Fit on her behalf using his account from Japan.
The complainant gave the accused $900 but then faced some financial problems and could not finish paying for the car.
 The court also heard that in March the same year, Matare topped up with $985 which was now for a Mark II before she gave Sibanda a further $1 900 for duty. Matare was allegedly prejudiced $3 785 by the accused who did not purchase the vehicle. In count two Sibanda approached Chinyakuze and told her that he can purchase a Toyota Corolla on her behalf so she gave him $1 511 as deposit through the accused's bank account.
The court heard that in count three Shumba approached Sibanda and gave him $9 000 for the purchase of a Toyota Hiace from Japan. 
In count four Matare later approached Sibanda with the intention of purchasing a Toyota Hiace from Japan and gave him a total of $2 800, in total the complainant gave the accused $6 585 and nothing was recovered. Sibanda started giving excuses to all the three complainants saying that there had been a problem with the paperwork and gave them false promises when the six months waiting period he had promised elapsed. 
The accused had been attending all the trial sections only until last week when he decided to run away.
