POLICE in Choma are looking for a Zanaco Bank employee in Monze in connection with arson and theft of K59,000 from a client using a cloned Automated Teller Machine card (ATM). Police public relations officer Esther Mwaata Katongo said the incident is reported to have occurred on July 3 at the Zanaco branch in Monze. Katongo said Imenda Musialike is alleged to have set the registry room on fire and some property got burnt.
“Value has not yet been established. The suspect is alleged to have stolen K59,000 from a client and that at the time officials from the bank were viewing CCTV footage from the information technology room to establish who could have withdrawn the money using the cloned ATM, she is alleged to have set the registry room located next to the information room on fire in a bid to destroy evidence but the fire was quickly quenched by other bank officials,” she said
Katongo said the suspect is currently on the run and investigations have been launched. In another development, three people died in an accident which occurred yesterday at 07:00 hours at Musonda Falls hills on the Mansa-Mwense road.
“Involved was a Foden Truck and Trailer registration number ASB 1327 and ASB 1717 ZM, property of Jimbara Milling Company which was being driven by Andrew Mulenga heading in the northern direction,” said Katongo. “The accident happened when the truck was ascending Musonda Hills and in the process overturned killing three people who were on board. One of the victims has been identified as Andrew Mulenga while the other two are not yet identified.”
