WOMAN STEALS HER ROORA
A Gweru woman has stolen $1 780 which had been saved by her boyfriend for her roora.
The woman connived with her boyfriend’s daughter to steal the money. Paidamoyo Gambiza (25) and the girl appeared before a Gweru magistrate charged with unlawful entry and theft.
They both pleaded not guilty to the offence. The court heard that on March 3, 2018, Gambiza and the girl hatched a plan to steal from her boyfriend’s house in Mkoba Village 16.
They proceeded to the targeted property knowing fully well that the complainant, only identified as Chikara, was away. They subsequently used a wire to break into his home through the window and stole $1 780.
The duo then proceeded to pay Chikara’s fellow tenants $2 as hush money.
When Chikara returned from his rural home, where he had visited to tell his relatives about his planned nuptials with Gambiza, his neighbour, Ms Faith Mayolu, spilled the beans.
