2 Avenues sex workers face theft charges


TWO sex workers from Harare’s Avenues area who allegedly thought they had struck a jackpot after stealing over $2 000 from a client yesterday appeared in court facing charges of theft.


Portia Chimusaru (25) and Charity Gwatsvaira (22) of Kenedine Court in the Avenues were not asked to plead when they appeared before Harare magistrate Tendai Mahwe.

They were remanded to January 15, 2015 on $100 bail. As part of the bail conditions, they were also ordered to reside at their given address and not to interfere with State witnesses.

State counsel Sharon Mashavira told the court that the complainant invited Chimusaru and Gwatsvaira for dinner at his Northhood residence in Mt Pleasant, Harare, on December 28.

Chimusaru went to sleep with the complainant at around 11pm, while Gwatsvaira slept in a separate room.

The accused persons allegedly woke during the night and stole $2 638 which was on a desk under complainant’s folders.

According to State papers, Chimusaru and Gwatsvaira are the only outsiders who slept in the house prior to the missing of the money. It is further alleged that they also saw complainant hiding the money under some folders.
