Hairdresser charged with theft
Published: 14 November 2017 (112 Views)
A 28-YEAR-OLD hairdresser has been arrested for allegedly using US$6 277, which was mistakenly transferred into her bank account.

Patience Chiweshe was not asked to plead when she appeared before Harare magistrate Gideon Ruvatsa charged with theft.

The matter was remanded to December 6 and she was granted US$400 bail.

The complainant in this matter is Yolana Investments Private Limited being represented by Yolanda Mutseyekwa.

The State alleges that on September 25 this year during the course of her duties as a hair dresser employed by the complainant, Musteyekwa was doing salary payments for all employees of the company through mobile banking.

She reportedly transferred US$20 599 into Chiweshe's bank account instead of US$205 that was due to her.

After she realised her mistake she immediately notified her bank manager and he assured her that the problem would be rectified.

Chiweshe reportedly received the money and did not verify the origin of the money but proceeded to use it.

The offence came to light on September 27 when Mutseyekwa enquired with Chiweshe's bank, she was told that the money was already transferred into the accused account number and she used some of the money.

US$14 332 was transferred back into Mutseyekwa's account.

Linda Gadzikwa appeared for the State.
