A Mutare man was left counting his losses after being duped of over US$1000 by a lady of the night whom he had met at a club in Odzi. 23-year-old Abigail Maugwe appeared before Mutare magistrate Langton Carter, facing theft charges to which she pleaded guilty. Prosecuting for the State, Nyasha Mukonyora told the court that Maugwe stole US$1260 from Knowledge Kasima who had hired her for the night. After getting US$10 for her services, Maugwe however stole the thousands from Kasima’s pocket while he slept. She was eventually arrested at a night club in Chikanga and Kasima only recovered US$570 and an itel cellphone the accused had already bought.
