HARARE – A Harare woman has appeared before the courts after masquerading as Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga’s daughter and a lawyer to defraud an unsuspecting victim.
The fake Matanga’s daughter, Evelyn Matanga (29) is accused of defrauding one Hilda Ndoro of US$2 395 in a residential stand deal.
On Friday, the accused appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi who denied her bail.
The State told the court that sometime in October last year, Ndoro was introduced to Matanga by her daughter who insinuated that Matanga was a legal practitioner who could help her through processes of purchasing a residential stand in Harare’s Damofalls.
Prosecutors also alleged that Ndoro then met Matanga in Harare CBD with the latter introducing herself as Matanga’s daughter and a legal practitioner who could assist her.
