A Harare man has been brought before the courts on allegations of fraud after he swindled his company of a total 170 000 Rand after supplying false account details for the purchase of pipes.
The accused, Tichaona Murakwami (43), is an operations manager at a local gas company, Adceng Gas Equipment.
He allegedly doctored an invoice with fake banking details which he, in turn, submitted to his company, making them act on the misrepresentation and lost the money in the process.
He appeared before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa facing fraud charges. Sebastian Mutizirwa appeared for the state.
