A Harare man, Thamsanqa Mpofu who was on his way to the United Kingdom (UK) was deported back to Zimbabwe in Ethiopia after it was discovered that he was using a passport that did not belong to him.
Zim Morning Post reports that Mpofu was allowed passage out of the country after he allegedly presented to the immigration officials a British passport belonging to one Bootha King Jesse.
Mpofu then boarded a plane to Ethiopia which would later connect him to the UK. The fraud was however discovered by Ethiopian immigration officials who then deported him back to Zimbabwe.
He was immediately arrested upon his arrival at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport on December 21.
Mpofu appeared before the court this Tuesday where he was granted ZWL100 bail on the condition that he reports once a week at the Rhodesville Police Station.
He was remanded to February 25, 2020.
