Gardener's Hat Gives Away US$75K, R121K Theft

Gardener's Hat Gives Away US$75K, R121K Theft

A maid and gardener allegedly stole US$75 000 and R121 000 from their employer last month but were sold out by the gardener’s hat found near the safe in the bedroom.

The employer rendered a citizen’s arrest but could only hold on to the maid and lost grip of the gardener who ran away.

Taurai Shonhiwa (34) was charged with theft when she appeared before Harare magistrate Mrs Yeukai Dzuda who remanded her out of custody to February 22.

It is alleged that sometime in January, the employer put US$75 000 and R121 000 in his bedroom safe and ordered Shonhiwa and Tatenda Ngirazi not to enter the bedroom though they had access to the bedroom keys. 

The two used a key to unlawfully open the bedroom door to gain entry and they used unknown means to open the safe and took cash, which they shared.

It is the State’s case that on Thursday last week, their employer decided to use the money he had kept in the safe but immediately noticed that its locking system had been tampered with. 

Upon opening the safe he realised that his money was missing.

Curiously, a hat belonging to Ngirazi was found near the safe.

The employer then quizzed Ngirazi on the whereabouts of his money.

Ngirazi confessed that he stole the money and implicated Shonhiwa. The gardener said he shared the money with Shonhiwa and that he used part of the money to buy a motor vehicle, a Toyota Ipsum.

I advise the gardner to hand over himself to the police immediately, admit to his two charges: theft and unlawful entry, get sentenced and start serving his jail term. Assuming he doesn't get arrested in the next 5 years, then the net closes for him in the 6th year and subsequently gets 10 years jail sentence. If you factor in everything, his effective jail term becomes 15 years because the 5years spent as a fugitive is jail sentence on its own, freedom dololo !! So Mr Gardner, just visit any nearest police station, admit guilty to the charges - who knows the court may consider a lighter sentence for co-operaring with law enforcement agencies plus unenge usina kutambisa nguva yedare.

Unless he makes it 20 years and 1 day on the run, by then the statute of limitations would have passed 😂
