    GWERU - A prominent Gweru businessman and proprietor of Gettingson Bus Services, Lot Gaka (40) has been dragged to court facing new fraud charges involving $12 000 after he allegedly made some RTGS transfers from his account knowing very well that he had no money.
    Gaka allegedly bought 1 200 x 1,25liters of Chibuku Super on January 9, 2017 through a Barclays Bank RTGS transfer and he then produced a $6 120 proof of payment to a teller at OK Mart in Gweru and told the teller that he had paid the money for crates of Chibuku Super and the transaction was cleared.
    The State says on January 9, 2017 Gaka went to Baclays Bank Gweru branch and made on  RTGS for $6 120 from his account number 1012962 to OK Mart account number 9140002499699 and he took a proof of the transfer  to OK Mart to buy beer.
    The following day on January 10, 2017 Gaka proceeded to his bank, made yet another transfer of the same amount and defrauded Ok Mart of Chibuku Super for the second time.
    After two days OK Mart manager Amon Dube discovered that the $12 240 had not reflected in the supermarket account and called Gaka who allegedly became evasive. The matter was reported to the Police and Gaka was arrested.
    This is not the first time that Gaka has appeared in court facing similar charges and The Mirror understands that there are more investigations being carried out.
