Woman in trouble over fake note


VICTORIA FALLS- A -58- year-old woman from Buhera in Manicaland who bought goods from TM Supermarket in Victoria Falls using a fake $100 note was on Monday lucky to escape imprisonment after she was sentenced to 105 hours of community service.

Serena Gwayi pleaded guilty to a fraud charge when she appeared before Victoria Falls magistrate Archbold Dingana.

She was initially slapped with a three-month jail term which was later suspended on condition she does community service at St John’s Primary School.

On February 10, Gwayi went to TM Supermarket in Victoria Falls to buy groceries.

She tendered a fake $100 note to purchase goods worth $7, 16.

The till operator, Mildred Ncube, immediately established the note was a counterfeit and made a report to the police, leading to Gwayi’s arrest.

Takunda Ndovorwi prosecuted.
