Prosecutors on Friday withdrew fraud charges against jailed socialite Felistas Murata, who is popularly known as Mai Titi, after the complainant withdrew the case.

 Mai TT was facing fraud and theft of trust property charges after she failed to repay a US$10 000 debt and for using a hired car as collateral.

In the first count, it is alleged that sometime in September 2022 and at corner Sam Nujoma Street and Speke Avenue, Mai Titi misrepresented to the complainant Rachel Mhuka that she needed US$10 000 for her business venture.

She pledged to surrender her Mercedes Benz vehicle as surety.

It, however, later emerged that the car was not hers.

In the second count, Mai Titi approached a car rental company represented by director Liberty Vazhura intending to hire an Audi Q5 motor vehicle.

After securing the car, she allegedly became evasive, forcing Vazhura to report the matter to the police.
