Margret says in court papers thatbshe left Brian in custody of the cars when she returned to work at Chirundu Border Post.

Mashongwa gave her boyfriend permission to use the Toyota Toyoace temporarily.

During the same month, Mandofa was given a Toyota Belta (AEM5578), so that he could have the motor vehicle repaired as it was having some mechanical problems.

Mashongwa asked her boyfriend to bring back the two motor vehicles but he started giving excuses. At times Mandofa would not pick up calls or he would answer and shout at her.

Irked by her boyfriend’s actions, Mashongwa reported the matter to police who arrested Mandofa’s at his work place in Warren Park D, Harare.

Mandofa appeared at the Harare Magistrates Court charged with theft of trust property. He was not asked to plead to the charges when he appeared before magistrate Mr Dennis Mangosi, who remanded him in custody to today for bail application.

Prosecutor Lancelot Mutsokoti said sometime in January this year, Mashongwa gave Mandofa a Toyota Toyoace ( ADP1757) for safe keeping. □
