Hooker steals phone from sleep­ing client

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Andile Tshuma

A 26-YEAR-OLD man lost his phone to a pros­ti­tute he had hired overnight after she de­cided to steal it as “pay­ment” when he fell asleep be­fore ser­vices were ren­dered.

Amanda Moyo (25) from Bu­l­awayo’s Lu­veve sub­urb ap­peared be­fore Western Com­mon­age Mag­is­trate Mr Stephen Ndhlovu charged with theft.

She de­nied the charges and was re­manded out of cus­tody to to­mor­row for con­tin­u­a­tion of trial.

Moyo told the mag­is­trate that she took the cell­phone as com­pen­sa­tion for spend­ing the night at Mh­langa’s house.

“Time is an im­por­tant com­mod­ity in my busi­ness. How could he just hire me, and doze off on ar­rival at his house? He was sup­posed to pay me be­cause he took me from my work sta­tion where I could have been hired by bet­ter pay­ing and per­form­ing clients,” said Moyo.

Prose­cut­ing, Mr Ken­neth Shava said Moyo, a hooker who op­er­ates from a bar in the city cen­tre was hired by Mr Al­bert Mh­langa of Old Loben­gula sub­urb.

“On Oc­to­ber 31 this year at around 2AM, the com­plainant met the ac­cused per­son at a lo­cal pub. They spent some time to­gether be­fore the ac­cused per­son hired her and took her to his home for sex­ual ser­vices for the night,” he said.

Mr Shava said on ar­rival at his res­i­dence, Mr Mh­langa fell asleep as he was too drunk.

“As soon as they ar­rived at the com­plainant’s res­i­dence, he fell asleep. He was heav­ily drunk and could not make it. He had not yet paid Moyo. Moyo was al­legedly an­gry that her time had been wasted for noth­ing as she could have been hired by bet­ter pay­ing and per­form­ing clients. She then took his cell­phone, a Nokia As­tra 503 val­ued at $30 and went away un­no­ticed,” he said.

Mh­langa woke up and dis­cov­ered that Moyo was gone and his cell­phone was missing.He re­ported the mat­ter to the po­lice and Moyo was ar­rested out­side a city pub where she so­lic­its for clients.— @andile_ tshuma.
