NURSE LOSES EX HUBBY’S PENSION TO CASANOVA | A nurse has lost her late husband’s pension to an ex-boyfriend after she entrusted him with her CBZ Bank card.
The Chitungwiza Central Hospital nurse lost over $14 000, which included a lump sum payment of her late husband’s pension and $2 000 compensation for damages made to her car.
Martha Chitongo (29) of Zengeza 4 in Chitungwiza was not the only victim of her ex-boyfriend, Allen Bhaswi, who also duped another girlfriend, Joice Muchemwa (31) of $6 000.
Charlotte Chanakira (23), who also knew Bhaswi, lost $2 800 to him after he promised to import a car for her. The trio lost a combined $23 445 to Bhaswi. Bhaswi denied five counts of fraud before Chitungwiza resident magistrate Mr Francis Mapfumo last Friday.
He was remanded in custody to today for trial continuation. “Chitongo gave me access to both her vehicle, authority to use her bank card, freely and voluntarily,” said Bhaswi. “I was also in love with Muchemwa from May 2017 to date.
She never gave me $6 000 to buy a stand. Chanakira gave me $2 800 as deposit to buy her a Toyota Runx on her behalf and I repaid $1 400.”
