THE son of late businessman James Chiyangwa, popularly known as Jimmy Jimalo, has been arrested for the third time on allegations of cloning debit cards belonging to various people before splashing their savings on personal luxuries.
According to NewZimbabwe.com, Mike Harris Chiyangwa was on Friday arraigned before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa facing multiple counts of fraud and unauthorised possession of debit cards as defined in Section 167 of the Criminal Law Codefication and Reform Act.
Chiyangwa was remanded in custody pending bail ruling after the state opposed his bail.
Prosecuting, Sebastin Mutizirwa opposed his bail arguing that Chiyangwa has similar charges still pending before the court.
Chiyangwa is into transport business and, according to the state, some of the complainants are his customers.
On one count, Chiyangwa allegedly stole $14 000 from one Denis Magaya, the chief executive of Rubiem Zimbabwe Pvt Ltd.
According to court papers, on December 22 last year Chiyangwa cloned Magaya’s ATM card which had a credit balance of $9 045.
Court heard he took the counterfeit card to Telecel Bindura and used it to buy airtime worth $4 500.
He used the card to make various transactions and the complainant would receive bank alerts.
On the same day, the complainant called FBC, his bank, and was told that he indeed made some transactions yet he had not.
The bank then reported the case and investigations established that Chiyangwa had committed the offence. They tracked his handset which he also used to make some transactions from Magaya’s account.
Other complainants include Tashupika Mwanjira who lost $4 000 to Chiyangwa.
Roy Shanu, a car dealer, also lost $5 100 while Knowledge Marowa among others lost $1 980. Source – newzimbabwe
