A Ruwa based man has been arrested after conniving with school authorities to dupe Admiral Tait Primary School, 200 Point of Lay chickens worth Z$257,200.
The Point of Lay chickens were meant for the school’s agriculture class but Bister Chinodya diverted them for personal use.
Chinodya, who has no authority to act on behalf of the school, collected the chickens on behalf of the school using proof of payment documents, in what is suspected to be an inside job.
The school chairman George Mungoni reported the matter to Rhodesville Police Station under RRB number 709708, leading to Chinodya’s arrest.
It is alleged that on May 12, Admiral Tait Primary School made a payment of ZWL$257,200 to Hukuluku CBZ account number 01125837780015.
Chinodya went on to collect the chickens on 17 May 2021 ostensibly on behalf of the school but without permission to do so.
