Tongogara Refugee Camp Money Heist: Guards Ordered To Pay Pack The Money

Tongogara Refugee Camp Money Heist: Guards Ordered To Pay Pack The Money

Three security guards employed by Securico Security Services have been jailed for suspended five years each for stealing US$60 360 meant for refugees at Tongogara Refugee Camp in Chipinge.

The security guards were then remanded in custody on the condition that they refund the complainant the money through the clerk of court before the end of this month.

Admit Kuora, Tafadzwa Kwenda and Eric Ruuswa, all from Harare, were asked to pay back US$20 120 each.

They were convicted by Chipinge magistrate Mrs Elizabeth Hanzi yesterday after a full trial.

The trio was represented by Mr Simon Simango of Nyikadzino and Simango Associates and they all pleaded not guilty, but Mrs Hanzi jailed them after overwhelming evidence against them.

What transpired:

Prosecutor Mr Timothy Katsande told the court that in December last year, six security guards employed by Securico Security Service, including Kuora, Kwenda and Ruuswa, were securing refugees’ monthly allowances at Tongogara Refugee Camp.

They parked their cash-in-transit vehicle for the night at the entrance of a room that they were using. Said Katsande:

During the night, the three accused persons then hatched a plan to steal the money for their personal use.

The trio then opened the safe and stole two trunk boxes loaded with US$60 360 cash and vanished from the scene and returned back to sleep where the other security guards were sleeping.

Katsande added that the incident came to light during the morning when the security guards went to disburse the money to the inmates. They made a police report that the money was stolen by unknown robbers.

Investigations suggested that Kuora, Kwenda and Ruuswa had stolen the money.

It's sad that people steal money from people who are running away from persecution and war from their home countries. But the guards actions can only be blamed on sanctions brought on by Mr Tendai Biti and his CCC neo colonialists which has brought about untold suffering to the people of this great nation.

And you, Chawabvunza, what are you doing to alleviate the suffering of the people of this great country, except to spent the whole day on free pindula spewing anti invisible sanctions nonsense.
