MVUMA – A man from Huchu Village in Mvuma, Piki Mutero (43) has appeared before Magistrate Tayengwa Chibanda facing charges of fraud after he allegedly duped Nyasha Mhambare (34) of $1 900 in a flopped land deal.
Mhambare is an electrician in Harare and nothing was recovered. Mhambare who was looking for a plot to buy in Mvuma sometime in November 2014 caught up with Enock Nezungai who promised to assist him in getting the plot. The complainant in the company of Nezungai proceeded to Mvuma Lands Office
where on arrival was advised to remain outside while Nezungai entered
the office to enquire from the Lands Officer.
Nezungai then came back to the complainant and told him that he was referred to Mutero and Rennias Zviura who were Village chairmen in the area. The two proceeded to Mutero's homestead where Mutero and Zviura, who is still at large showed him the 50 hectares plot which they offered for $1 500.
The complainant paid $1 200 to the three and was promised a receipt as proof of payment and offer letters on payment of the full balance.
In February, 2015, the complainant paid $300 to the accused and asked to occupy the place but he was told to pay another $400 purportedly for the Mvuma Council rentals from 2010 to 2015. He paid the $400 in March to Mutero.
Mutero failed to offer the complainant receipts and offer letters as
agreed. The complainant then became suspicious and went to the plot where he was showed by the accused and discovered that someone was already
occupying the the land. The complainant went to Mvuma Lands Office to ascertain if the persons had remitted the money and he got a negative answer.
The accused was convicted and sentenced to 36 months imprisonment of which 12 months were suspended on condition of good behavior for five years and further 12 months were suspended on condition that he restitutes the complainant of US$1
