National Foods Scammed Off More Than US$800K

Harare | Cale Sibanda, a former National Foods cash book clerk, appeared in court Wednesday on charges of stealing $17,000 while still employed by the firm.

Sibanda was freed on US$200 bond after appearing before Harare judge Dennis Mangosi.

He was required to report to the CID Commercial Crimes Division twice a week.

According to the court, between August of last year and June of this year, Sibanda deceived his superiors by generating schedules of petty cash costs and stock take allowances with an actual list of the employees entitled for payment, and excluding himself.

After management had verified and authorised the payment, Sibanda would edit the electronic document to include his name and that of his accomplice, Nyarai Gumberu, and their Mycash account numbers.
