The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has confirmed the arrest of Leeman Mushayi (26) and Prince Kadzungwe (41) in connection with cases of fraud which occurred in Harare on the 6th of April 2021.

The suspects approached an Econet shop and fraudulently applied for a sim-card replacement on the complainant’s number before restoring her WhatsApp and advertising on groups purporting that she was dealing in foreign currency.

According to police, several victims were enchanted with good rates and were defrauded various amounts.

Meanwhile ZRP is appealing to complainants duped in a similar manner by suspects to come forward and report so that criminals are brought to book.
