Fraudster blows $45 000, runs
A BULAWAYO man is on the run after he allegedly blew $45 000 belonging to his employer.
Samuel Moyo, who is now on the police wanted list, was employed as a manager at Rubicon Drilling in Bulawayo’s Belmont industrial area.
Police have since launched a manhunt for the fraudster who allegedly committed the crime three months ago.
Acting Bulawayo police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Abednico Ncube said they are appealing for information leading to Moyo’s arrest.
“We are appealing for information that may assist us to locate and subsequently arrest Samuel Moyo who is wanted in connection with a case of fraud which occurred on June 20, 2016. He was employed as a manager at Rubicon Drilling Company when he converted $45 000 to his own use,” he said.
Asst Insp Ncube urged members of the public with information on Moyo’s whereabouts to contact the officer in charge of Donnington Police Station Insp Khanye on (09) 468520 or the investigating officer Constable Absolom Chigamba on (09) 474005 or 0713673398 or alternatively visit any nearest police station.
Moyo is tall, slim and brown in complexion and his last known address is Number 32A Percy Avenue, Hillside suburb in Bulawayo.
Two weeks ago, a driver from a tile and carpet company in Gweru also vanished with $26 000 he had collected from the company’s branches outside the city.
Privilege Chipangura (31), who is also wanted by police, dumped the company vehicle in Gweru’s Central Business District and was not seen again after he committed the crime.
Chipangura of Mambo suburb in Gweru was sent to Kwekwe and Kadoma on August 18 to collect money from the company’s branches.
It is said that Chipangura was on August 18 handed $14 000 by the company’s Kadoma branch manager and $12 000 by the Kwekwe branch manager and he allegedly proceeded to Gweru and never surrendered the money.
After failing to report back for work, the company, using a vehicle tracking system, recovered the car which Chipangura had dumped in Gweru’s CBD. — @ mashnets
