5 'defraud' Mugabe's Firm of $70,000

President Robert Mugabe’s Gushungo Holdings has been defrauded of over $70,000 by five of its employees, the High Court has heard.

Manager Titus Jack,42, is jointly charged with Juliet Jombosi, 37, Kudakwashe Ndavara, 24, Tavengwa Katanda, 36 and Lloyd Banda, 34.

Jack and his alleged accomplices deny the allegations. He told the police in his statement that he was not involved in the fraud.

The group yesterday approached High Court judge Loice Matanda-Moyo, seeking to be freed on bail after their request was denied by the magistrates’ court.
