Former Cabinet minister Cde Webster Shamu’s employee who allegedly defrauded his company of $30 000 was yesterday granted bail by a Harare magistrate.Willis Nyamusaduka (39), who was employed as a supervisor at WEBCON High Glen Total Service Station and is facing theft of trust property was granted $100 bail coupled with stringent conditions.

Nyamusaduka is expected to report every Friday at CID Serious Frauds and to reside at the address he gave to the court.

As part of his bail conditions, Nyamusaduka was warned not to interfere with State witnesses.

Mr Mahwe deferred the matter to June 30.

Prosecutor Mr Michael Reza alleged that between January 2014 and April 2015, Nyamusaduka received money from fuel attendants and under-banked a total of $29 126 which he converted to his personal use.

The court heard that in order to cover the offence, Nyamusaduka allegedly destroyed all the bank deposit slips and computer-generated receipts, leaving behind the cash register in which he had endorsed the correct amounts banked.

It is the State’s case that the offence only came to light on April 21 this year when Total Zimbabwe, the fuel supplier at WEBCON Total Service Station, aised the company that it was in arrears.

The court heard that the company directors conducted a reconciliation of the cash register, bank deposit slips and computer-generated receipts against a bank printout of the account.

It is alleged that after the reconciliation was done, it came to light that $29 126, which was endorsed in the cash register, did not tally with deposits made in the Total Zimbabwe bank account.

Cde Shamu and his wife Constance attended the court session.
