A FORMER ZRP officer is in trouble after he defrauded a desperate job seeker, promising his victim that he was going to get a place for him to train as a police officer at Morris depot.

courtLionel Munyaradzi Sambo, 28, swindled Darlington Nyakabangwe, 26, of $308.

He pleaded guilty to the charges and was remanded in custody pending his sentence.

Court heard the two met sometime last month in Chitungwiza where they both reside.

Nyakabangwe narrated his ordeal to Sambo, telling him that he was failing to secure a place to train as a police officer.

He also told him that he had recently applied at Morris Depot and was waiting for a response.

Sambo then promised Nyakabangwe that he would help him.

He told Nyakabangwe to give him $30 for finger prints, $8 for medical forms and $18 for back ground checks.

Nyakabangwe paid the money but Sambo kept asking for more money which was sent to him through Eco-Cash.

After paying money amounting $308 Sambo then advised Nyakabangwe to go to Morris Depot and start his training.

The desperate job seeker packed his bags on April 4 and boarded a kombi to town.

When he was on his way, Sambo then called him saying the intake had been cancelled so he had to wait for another intake.

Nyakabangwe became curious and reported the case leading to the arrest .
