A 23-year-old Guruve man was remanded in custody by Guruve magistrate for allegedly swindling his company's US$5800, which he blew with commercial sex workers in night clubs.

Tafadzwa Chamonyoka, popularly 'Chamoz', appeared before Guruve magistrate Artwel Sanyatwe on Friday and told the magistrate that his legal representative will be available on Monday before being remanded in custody.

According to state papers Chamoz swindled Maintain Investments' US$5800 through Ecocash from the period of March last year to 08 January 2018.

The accused person reportedly withdrew company funds from their Eco cash merchant line and the funds would be transferred to eco cash agents where he got cash outs ranging from $50 -$300.

The money was however blown at Executive bar and Dendere sports bar respectively where Chamoz was said to be the most paying client for hookers and at one point he allegedly bought beers for every patron in the bar.

Sex workers who spoke to said the arrest of Chamoz brought hunger in their families as they had given him another name baba Guruve for his spending mood.

"We are disturbed by the arrest of Chamoz he was now baba Guruve because the guy could pay more for less we charge $5 for a quick but baba Harare would pay double.

Starvation has visited us, on Christmas day he bought beer for every patron in Executive bar bragging that he had a most paying job in Guruve," explained the hooker.
