Fungai Lupande Court Reporter
A former accounts clerk with a private security company was allegedly assisted by the company’s human resources manager to leak confidential information to tarnish the company’s image after being denied payment of leave days.
The accounts clerk, Maenzanise Blessmore Munyikwa, appeared in court jointly charged with Solomon Mashayangombe.
The pair appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Tafadzwa Muvhami. They are facing unauthorised access to or use of computer or network charges.
The first State witness, company finance manager Mr Chamirayi Nyemba, said he heard from the company stakeholders that someone was tarnishing the image of the company.
“The way the information was coming out seems like an insider was divulging the information,” he said.
The trial was adjourned to March 21.
Prosecutor Mr Chrispen Chikafu alleged that on September 7 last year, Mashayangombe resigned from the company without reason.
A week later Mashayangombe phoned the company finance department asking to be paid his leave days.
He was advised that it was not possible because he left without notice.
Irked, Mashayangombe connived with Maenzanise to fix the company.
Investigations were carried out leading to the arrest of the pair.
