    Gutu RDC engineer in court for fraud


    GUTU – Gutu Rural District Council (RDC) engineer Vambai Shenjere has appeared at the Gutu Magistrates Court facing charges of defrauding his em-ployer of revenue by instructing a client to deposit money into his personal ac-count.
    The State witness is the Council Chief Executive Officer, Alexandra Mtembwa.
    Shenjere was remanded out of custody to December 10, 2019.
    It is the State case that sometime in 2017, Shenjere offered stand number 2786 Chomufuli Suburb at Mpandawana to a home seeker Tevedzerai Chikato which council had already sold to Garikai Nemaruru.
    Shenjere allegedly told Chikato that the land had been reclaimed by council from Nemaruru because he was failing to pay for it.
    Shenjere then allegedly instructed Chikato to deposit $1 500 into his ZB account 4561 7459 255 #200 and $4 000 into Gutu RDC account.
    This transaction allegedly happened before Nemaruru was told of the local authority’s intention to reclaim the stand from him. Chikato then deposited $1, 300 into Shenjere’s account and gave him $200 cash which was allegedly to be given to Nemaruru as a refund.
    Chikato paid off the amounts in February 2019 and only got to know that she was hoodwinked after approaching Gutu RDC lease office for appropriate papers.
    She then reported the matter to ZRP Gutu.
