Mutare – A bar lady at Club Mandisa in Mutare has been arrested after she allegedly stole US$1 000 from her company and fled to Harare where she hid at a house in Highfield.
Club Mandisa is owned by Bornface Nyamanhindi and the accused is Tanyaradzwa Meda (22).
Meda appeared before Mutare magistrate Perseverance Makala who remanded her in custody to December 20, 2022, after she pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The State led by Loice Kadenha told the court that on November 15, 2022 at 3am, the accused took US$1093,00 and converted it to her own use.
“On November 15, at 3am the accused finished duty, took US$1093.00 from her sales and went away unnoticed.
“At 7am the complainant was called by his general hand that she wanted to clean the shop but all the doors were locked. The complainant tried to call the accused person but her phone was not reachable.
“He proceeded to the CCTV to check what had transpired and discovered that the accused had proceeded to her room where she packed all her belongings and jumped into a black Toyota Raum that was waiting for her outside,” said Kadenha.
The businessman discovered that all the money from the sales had been stolen. Meda was arrested by police details while hibernating at number 2086 Highfield, Harare.
The presiding magistrate initially consented $80 000 bail but reversed it after the accused failed to give the Court her permanent address of residence.
