Rusape man arrested for defrauding Econet $40 000 airtime

By Samuel Kadungure

A RUSAPE man, Taurai Chiruka, was arrested on allegations of defrauding his employer, Econet Wireless Zimbabwe $40 000 worth of airtime recharge cards.

Chiruka, who was employed as a cashier at the giant mobile network provider’s

outlet opposite TM Supermarket in Rusape, was last week arraigned before a Rusape provincial magistrate, Mr Shingi Mutiro, facing theft charges as defined by Section 113 of the Criminal Law Codification and Reforms Act, Chapter 9:23.

Chiruka was remanded to August 5 for trial, on $100 bail.

It was the State case by Mr Tafara Chawatama that the suspect caused the disappearance of four cartons of airtime worth $40 000.

Each carton contained 2 000 airtime recharge cards worth $5 each.

Chiruka, who was being represented by Rusape lawyers, Mr Leonard Chigadza and Mr Taurai Khupe – both of Chigadza and Associates Legal Practitioners – is denying the charges.

Mr Chawatama told the court that Churuka unlawfully prejudiced Econet Rusape the first carton which had 2 000x$5 recharge cards serial numbers 768424001 to 7680426000 starting July 2012.

When his employer failed to notice the offence, Chiruka allegedly fleeced his employer of the second carton with 2 000x$5 recharge cards serial numbers 7680432001 to 768043400.

He allegedly pounced again and caused the disappearance of the third carton with another 2 000x$5 recharge cards serial numbers 7680436001 to 7680438000.

Mr Chawatama said by June 2013, Chiruka had allegedly defrauded his employer the fourth carton containing 2 000x$5 recharge cards serial numbers 7680438001 to 7680440000.

Mr Chawatama said total Econet Wireless Zimbabwe Rusape branch was allegedly prejudiced $40 000 of which nothing was recovered.

The discrepancies were exposed during an audit.
