ZIMBA FAKES DEATH IN THE UK

A Zimbabwean man and his South African wife are facing jail in the UK after faking his death for a £400 000 insurance payout.

Bekezela Bhebhe, 52,  and his South African wife, Thulile, have been dragged to court and charged with fraud.
Thulile pretended her husband was dead after Bhebhe faked his own death between 1 August and 30 September 2016.
Daily Mail reports that Bhebhe denied one count of fraud by false representation. His South African wife admitted the same charge at the hearing.

Prosecutor Julian Pozimski told magistrates: 'This is a case involving the provision of a life insurance policy of £397, 153.' He said that, if found guilty, Mr. Bhebe, could get up to five years in prison and so the case should be heard at a Crown Court.
Magistrate Colin Bateman-Jones told the couple: 'The question of Mr. Bhebhe's guilt will be a matter for a trial.'
Bhebhe, of Hayes, Middlesex, will appear at Inner London Crown Court on December 13, while Thulile Bhebhe, of the same address, will be sentenced after the conclusion of her husband's trial.
