Suspected prostitute takes off with $300

A 23-YEAR-OLD suspected lady of the night from Nkulumane suburb has been arraigned before the courts facing theft charges after she allegedly stole $300 from a patron.


The woman, Siduduzile Madevu, appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Tancy Chipumha Dube where she was charged under Section 113 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.

She pleaded not guilty to the allegations claiming she had never met Godfrey Gono, the complainant.

She was remanded in custody to February 7 for sentencing.

Madevu said that on the day in question she did not go to a night club, but spent the night at a cousin’s place in Entumbane.

“If this man says he slept with me, can he be able to identify any scar on my body?” she asked.

Gono failed to give a tangible response to the question and claimed he was too drunk to notice any scars that night.

“I was drunk and had no time to study your body,” he said.

Prosecutor Kenneth Shava told the court that on January 23 this year, Gono met Madevu and they decided to drink together at Nkulumane Complex night club.

After a few drinks at around 12 midnight, Gono took Madevu to his house, where they spent the night.

“To my surprise when I woke up early in the morning Madevu was nowhere to be found and her phone was not reachable,” he said.

“I went straight to my wardrobe where I had hung my jacket with $300 in the pocket, but I found it empty,” he explained.

Gono said he kept on calling Madevu, but she never responded to his calls, leaving him with no option but to report the matter to the police.
