A former Esigodini Agriculture College accounting assistant has been arrested for allegedly embezzling the institution's funds during his term of office.

Honest Khuphe (32) of Nketa 6 suburb in Bulawayo allegedly converted US$560 which were payments made by students to his own use and went on to forge receipts.

Khuphe was not asked to plead when he appeared briefly before Gwanda magistrate Mrs Lerato Nyathi facing three counts of fraud last week.

He was remanded out of custody to 28 June for trial on his own cognisance. Prosecuting, Mr Silent Shoko said Khuphe stole the money on three separate occasions in 2015.

"On 16 March 2015 Khuphe received US$370 from a college student, Honest Ndirowei and he issued him a top copy of receipt number 447595 without placing a carbon paper. He then made another entry on the duplicate receipt bearing the same receipt number in the name of another student Alice Dube and entered that she had paid US$10 for an application form which she had already paid for.




"Khuphe went on to complete entries on the student ledger card confirming that Honest Ndirowei had cleared his arrears and he converted US$370 into his own use. On 26 June 2015 Khuphe received US$10 from another student but didn't issue her with a receipt. He went on to update the student ledger card confirming that the student had paid the money and he converted it to his own use,"he said.

Mr Shoko said on 18 December 2015, Khuphe received US$180 from a student Zinhle Moyo and he receipted the money without using a carbon paper.

He said Khuphe made another entry on the duplicate certificate bearing the receipt number in the name of another student Nkosana Ncube and entered that he had paid US$10 for an application form which is a payment that he had already made. Mr Shoko said Khuphe went on to complete entries on the student ledger card confirming that Zinhle Moyo had cleared her arrears and he converted the money to his own use.

"The offence was discovered by auditors who were inspecting school records and the matter was reported to the police. Upon realising that he had been caught Khuphe deposited US$180 on 16 July 2016 into Esigodini Agriculture Institution's Agribank account. Khuphe defrauded the institution of cash amounting to US$560 and US$180 was recovered. The ledger cards in respect of all the students involved containing details of all the transactions and an auditor's report can be produced as exhibits," said Mr Shoko.
