A 31-year-old Bindura woman appeared before Bindura Magistrate Jessylene Madhaga yesterday facing impersonation charges after duping two women.
The state alleged that sometime in April, the accused Tsungai Hungwe Kandunya of Shashi plot, introduced herself to two ladies as a member of the Central Intelligence Organization (CIO) as a strategy to ploy them.
On the first count, Kandunya contacted one complainant Nyarai Bhaureni several times over the phone after she got her contact from Princess Chiyamba.
On April 23, the two met in Bindura town and Kandunya told Bhaureni that she worked at Bindura President’s office.
Bhaureni gave Kandunya US$72 and some chickens as they had agreed that Kandunya will use her connections as a CIO member to purchase some goods for her in Zambia.
Kandunya allegedly used the same modus operandi to embezzle Asayata Chikandira who also fell prey.
The matter continues on Monday.
