A SIMBISA Brands employee was yesterday hauled to court to answer fraud charges involving $555 000.
Shantel Tanyaradzwa, who works as a cashier for Simbisa Brands Zimbabwe, appeared before Harare magistrate Yeukai Dzuda.
She was granted $30 000 bail.
She will return to court on September 23 for continuation of the trial.
It is the State’s case that sometime this month, Tanyaradzwa hatched a plan to steal from her employer.
From July 1 to July 14, the accused is said to have received cash, in US dollars, from customers. She allegedly converted the payment to suggest it had been settled in local currency.
The offence came in light on July 14, 2022, when the complaint’s internal auditor carried out an audit, comparing bank statement against till system/receipts.
A police report was filed leading to her arrest.
