Chipo Mweda a CBZ Bank operations manager is on the run after she allegedly defrauded the bank’s clients of $300 000. Mweda is alleged to have connived with local businessman Lloyd Gambiza to fraudulently transfer money from various CBZ account holders into Gambiza’s account. This happened between November 2016 and February 2017. The two would then share the proceeds of their scheme.
After the bank received queries from clients, it launched an investigation which resulted in the arrest of Gambiza. Mweda’s whereabouts are currently unknown and the police are looking for her.
Gambiza appeared before Harare magistrate Ms Nomsa Sarabauta facing charges of fraud. He was granted $300 bail and ordered to continue residing at house Number 2737 Mupfuti Road, New Marlborough, Harare; not to interfere with witnesses and to report once a week to the police until the matter is finalised.
