A lady banker in mountainous southern district of Mulanje working for NBS swindled the bank to save her secret love from being jailed, it has been reported.
Friday’s sensational tabloid, Weekend Times reported that there was commotion at Mulanje Police station recently when the lady banker’s husband, who lives in Blantrye ,came at the station to re-pay the money his wife had swindled despite the fact that she used the money to service her other relationship.
The 26 year old bank teller Zamiwe Sanga on August 25 transferred K27,600 from a pensioner’s savings account and deposited it in Stuart Sabiti’ account. Sabiti is believed to be the banker’s secret lover.
The paper was quoting unnamed NBS official who told the police the information.
Sabiti was remanded at Mulanje prison.
Sanga, who is legally married to a Blantyre-based motor vehicle dealer Felix Nalisawo, took a withdrawal slip to her secret lover who filled and signed the slip before Sanga cashed the money, it was reported.
Sabiti was arrested for swindling K700, 000 from a business woman.
The paper says Sanga admitted before the police her wrongdoing.
“I fully admit my wrong and whatever I did against the bank’s ethics and even more, at the risk of my job was solely aimed at taking him out of trouble,” reads the statement at the police.
According to head of Criminal Investigations Department at Mulanje police, Inspector Yendani Mazalo, the lady banker will have to answer a criminal charge while her lover will be treated as an “accessory to committing crime.”
The banker who hails from Edwaleni Village in Traditional Authority Mtwalo in Mzimba district had her theft case closed as the bank advised the police that they did not intend to proceed with a criminal case against their employee because all they wanted was to have their money back.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
