ZANACO employee on the run with K 59, 000

An employee of Zanaco Bank in Monze is on the run after stealing K59, 000 from a client using a cloned Automated Teller Machine (ATM). Police spokesperson Esther Katongo stated that Imenda Musialike also burnt the registry room in an effort to destroy the evidence.

“Police in Choma are looking for a female adult identified as Imenda Musialike, a worker at ZANACO Bank in Monze in connection with Arson and theft of K59, 000 from a client using a cloned Automated Teller Machine card (ATM).”

The crime reportedly occurred on July 3rd 2019 at ZANACO, Monze branch. The woman is currently on the run and investigations have been launched, police say.

“The suspect is alleged to have stolen K 59,000 from a client and that at the time officials from the Bank were viewing CCTV footage from the information technology room to establish who could have withdrawn the money using the cloned ATM, she is alleged to have set the registry room located next to the information room on fire in a bid to destroy evidence but the fire was quickly quenched by other Bank officials.”

A month ago, an employee of Barclays Bank’s Longacres branch in Lusaka stole $400,000 and other amounts in foreign currency and fled the country. Pamela Gondwe, the Barclays employee, has since been placed on the Interpol list for wanted persons.
