Driving school swindled of $22 000


An administrator employed by a driving school, National Driver Training, allegedly defrauded the company of over $22 000 in a well-orchestrated scam, which involved duping prospective drivers.

Fiskani Kasambara (29) of Cecil Estates in Kadoma was charged under section 136 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act chapter 9:23. The State case led by Charles Muchemwa is that between January and August 2011, the accused received, but did not receipt money from clients who needed to undertake driving lessons, thereby prejudicing the company of $5 056.

During the same period, Kasambara received cash payments from clients for VID tests and failed to receipt the money, prejudicing the firm of $3 500, it is alleged.

The court further heard, during the same period, the accused under-banked cash received through the company’s Commercial Bank of Zimbabwe (CBZ) account, thereby prejudicing the firm of $3 830.

She also allegedly converted $9 632 to her personal use after purporting she had bought fuel for the driving school vehicles.

The alleged offences were unearthed following a forensic audit conducted on December 2. Nothing was recovered. Magistrate Takawira Mugabe remanded the accused to December 19 on $200 bail.
