Oil company acquitted

Oil company, Petrotrade Private Limited, has been cleared of defrauding a local client of $37,000.

Magistrate Kudakwashe Jarabini discharged the fuel company, saying the evidence linked the complainant, Tapiwa Shoko, to the offence.

Shoko, who represented the organisation Sickness Home and Shelter, claimed he paid $35,000 to Petrotrade to qualify for the firm’s credit line facility in which he expected to get 72 000 litres of diesel and 72 000 litres of petrol.

After paying the money, Shoko alleged the fuel was never delivered.

However, it was revealed that Shoko had produced a forged document that was purported to be authored by the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare recommending Sickness Home and Shelter to be allowed to procure fuel.
