Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Mashudu Net­sianda Se­nior Re­porter

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
