Mugabe Loses US$150 000 Cash To Employees

Former president Robert Mugabe lost US$150 000 cash to employees at his rural home in Zvimba.

The employees, who included his relatives, reportedly stole a briefcase which contained the money as they were doing household chores between December 1 last year and January 5 this year. The suspects, Constancia Mugabe (50), Johanne Mapurisa (50) and Saymore Nhetekwa (47), appeared before Chinhoyi magistrate Felix Mawadze yesterday facing theft charges. The trio was granted $2 000 bail each and remanded to January 24. They were ordered not to interfere with witnesses and to report at Kutama Police Station every Friday between 8am and 4pm and to surrender their passports.

The State is alleging that sometime between December 1 2018 and January 5 this year, the trio connived with Andrew Mahumbe, who is still at large, to steal a briefcase containing US$150 000 in cash as they were cleaning the house. Constancia Mugabe kept the keys to the house and had unlimited access to all its rooms. The matter was reported to the police and investigations showed the trio had accumulated unexplained wealth, which included cars, a residential stand and livestock.
