Warrant of arrest for Moonlight company director
HARARE – Police yesterday raided Moonlight Funeral Services looking for operations director Rodgers Nakhozwe after he failed to appear in court over a $35 000 fraud case.
Detectives from the serious fraud squad armed with a warrant of arrest issued at the Harare Magistrate’s Courts yesterday for contempt of court, however, failed to apprehend the director, who was not at his offices at NSSA Building.
Nakhozwe failed to appear in court on October 19 to stand trial in the fraud case, in which he is being charged under Section 136 of the Criminal Law Codification and Reform Act.
Nigel Peters, who is the complainant in this matter, is the managing director of Auto Center, sister company to Richport Marketing Pvt Ltd, which is in the business of steel fabrication and manufacturing of steel caskets.
Peters entered a deal with Moonlight Funeral Services to supply 40 imported caskets.
He went to South Africa where he bought the 40 steel caskets which he supplied to Moonlight Funeral Services under a Richport Marketing delivery note on February 13 this year.
Richport invoiced the imported caskets at $34 200.
Payment was not made, and the case was brought before the courts.
