Harare couple in court over US$87 307 fraud

Zim Now Writer

A Harare couple, Clark Clive Makoni and his wife Beverly, on Monday appeared before magistrate Dennis Mangosi facing a charge of fraud involving US$85 307.

Clark, 40, and Beverly, 37, were remanded in custody to tomorrow for bail ruling.

The complainant in the matter is Valley Lodge (Pvt) Ltd, which was represented by George Mashonganyika.

Clark and Beverly co-own Ark Properties (Pvt) Ltd, an estate agent company appointed by the complainant as managers of Valley Lodge in Mutare.

Prosecutor Grace Mugocheke said sometime in July 2017, the complainant engaged the services of the accused persons to manage Valley Lodge among other properties.

On August 10, 2017, the couple forged a CR14 form in which Clark appointed himself as director and company secretary, and Beverly as his deputy.

The two approached ZB Bank Mutare, Valley Lodge’s bank, with the forged CR14 form and misrepresented to the bank that they were the new shareholders, and wanted to change signatories to the bank accounts.

The court heard that the couple then fraudulently took over the complainant’s company and gained access to the company’s bank accounts and stole money.
