    Nyaradzo Funeral impostor in court for $6 000 fraud


    Obadiah Mutore (43) who resides in Zvishavane has been remanded in prison after he defrauded a number of people of $6 000 after falsely telling them that he was giving out loans on behalf of Nyaradzo Funeral.
    Mutore appeared before Magistrate Bishard Chineka in Mashava last week and was remanded in custody to August 12.
    Mutore comes from Guhudzewe Village under chief Zimunya in Mutare but resides in Zvishavane.
    It is the State case that Mutore defrauded Amos Nangati of $4 500 sometime in March 2016.
    It is alleged that the accused approached Nangati at his workplace and informed him that he had won a $750 000 tender from Nyaradzo Funeral Services and wanted to give out loans to people.
    Mutore then told the complainant to join the scheme by paying $500.
    On May 15, 2016 at around 930am, Mutore allegedly called Nangati and they drove from a place near Masvingo General Hospital to Bulawayo turnoff where he advised the complainant that he was coming from the Officer commanding Police Masvingo and she wanted $800 for Police clearance of cash in transit and disbursement.
    The complainant allegedly paid the money and there were further demands on different occasions that amounted to $4 500.
    On count 2, the accused met Wingson Pingama who resides at Pentecostal Assemblies of Zimbabwe in Masvingo. They allegedly met at Pastor Dumbuka's homestead at Chivi Growth Point.
    The accused then told Pingama about the loan facility that he ran and told him that he could give him $100 000 and his wife $20 000 loan. He said the loans were interest free and repayment would only start in 2017.
    The accused was allegedly given $1 800 for the processing of the loans.
    The total amount conned is $6 300 and nothing was recovered.
