Chief Makoni’s wife faces $57k fraud charge
A WARRANT of arrest has been issued against Chief Makoni’s wife, Redempter Gwasira after she absconded court in a case in which she is facing allegations of stealing farming inputs worth $57 600 from a contracting company.
Gwasira (44) of Fairfield Farm, Mufusire in Headlands is alleged to have abused her position as the chief’s wife to impose herself on the inputs distribution committee before diverting inputs meant for other beneficiaries to personal use. The inputs were for the Intwasa Pfumvudza Programme.
State prosecutor Mr Gift Mutigwa told the court that Gwasira only distributed 2 400 inputs hampers and appropriated 1 440.
