POLICE OFFICER VANISHES WITH $90k SALARIES, LEAVES WORKMATES IN DESPAIR
ZRP Provincial Finance Officer Inspector Tendai Hativagone discovered the anomaly on Tuesday (02/01/2018) after he requested for a bank statement regarding the police Provincial Contingency account with Chinhoyi Commercial Bank of Zimbabwe under account number 22980790015.
CBZ Chinhoyi supplied police with the requested information. The money had been transferred to the Agribank account owned by Karombo.
The account has since been frozen but Karombo had already withdrawn $76 390, 85 whilst a balance of $13 609, 15 remained in the account.
Meanwhile, Karombo disappeared from work after committing the crime. A trace of his cellphone showed that he was in Harare but did not return to work on Tuesday as expected.
Some of the money has since been withdrawn from the account, leaving an outstanding $13 0000. Investigations are still in progress.
