FORMER Transparency International Zimbabwe (TIZ) employee Victor Mafuta (35) was yesterday arraigned before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi facing charges of fraud and forgery.

Mafuta was granted $50 000 bail.

Allegations are that sometime in December 2021, Mafuta forged the signature of one of the TIZ directors, Tafadzwa Chikumbu (and withdrew money) and misrepresented to the TIZ board of trustees that it was meant to pay service providers. It is alleged that instead of paying service providers, Mafuta diverted US$21 848 to his personal account and converted the money to his own use.

Nothing was recovered.
