Prosecutor Simeleni Nkala alleged that during the height of cash shortages at the collapsed Allied Bank, Mureyani filled in withdrawal forms and forged signatures of the two women.

The State alleges he then made cash withdrawals at intervals from the two accounts and converted the money to his own use.

It is alleged Mureyani withdrew $4 735 from Ruhonde’s account in 17 transactions and $2 300 from Makusha’s account in five transactions.

However, the matter was discover when the victims requested bank statements for their accounts only to find out that their money had been withdrawn.

Mureyani was represented by Innocent Hore.
