PATRICIA Mashoko, the director of one of Kwekwe’s popular joints, Majoni Bar also known as KwaMaiguru, has taken her manager Dzikamai Nyoni to court over theft allegations involving close to $500 000.
Nyoni (38) denied the theft charge when she appeared before Kwekwe magistrate Taurai Manwere last Friday.
Nyoni is accused of having fleeced her employer of large sums of monies.
The State led by Tinashe Mhonda told the court that on seven counts between 2012 and early this year, Nyoni manipulated stock sheets, banking records and other documents to steal the money which she converted to her own use.
Mashoko claimed that she lost $446 294, R24 176,50 and P246 through under banking, under declarations of money received from cashiers and of closing stock and deliberate manipulation of stock records by Nyoni.
However, Nyoni through her lawyer Linnet Makande claimed that the charges were fabricated adding that prior to the court case Mashoko had expressed satisfaction with her conduct.
Nyoni was granted $1 000 bail and remanded to August 18 for trial.
