BOB HOARDS $150K AT HOME : WORKERS NICK IT

Former president Mugabe keeps loads of cash at his rural home and his workers stole $150 000 and went on spending sprees.

The $150 000 was stashed in a briefcase and workers— Constancia Mugabe (50), Johanne Mapurisa (50) and Saymore Nhetekwa (47) — appeared before Chinhoyi magistrate Mr Felix Mawadze yesterday facing theft charges.

Mr Mawadze granted the trio $2 000 bail each and remanded them to January 24. The suspects were ordered not to interfere with the State’s chief witness, Gushungo Holdings human resources manager and administrator of the Grace Mugabe Foundation, Mr Farai Edson Jemwa.

The court heard that between December 1 2018 and January 5 this year, the trio connived with Andrew Mahumbe, who is still at large, to steal a briefcase containing $150 000 in cash as they were cleaning the house.

Constancia Mugabe kept the keys to the house and had unlimited access to all its rooms.
The matter was reported to the police.

Investigations showed that the trio had accumulated unexplained wealth, which included cars, a residential stand and livestock.
