Ex-manager appears for N$2m fraud

14 September 2017 | Crime

Manga Nawa-Mukena, a former marketing manager at MultiChoice Namibia is accused of defrauding her employer of more than N$2 million.

She appeared in the Windhoek Magistrate's Court and her case was postponed to next Tuesday for plea.

According to the court papers, it is alleged that over a period of four years and through falsifying invoices, Nawa-Mukena allegedly defrauded MultiChoice Namibia of more than N$2 million by falsifying 80 invoices for advertisements for Kundana, for services she claimed were rendered by the newspaper, and provided her personal bank account to receive payment.

On 19 September Nawa-Mukena will plead to charges of fraud, forgery and uttering.

The State's case alleges that Mukena from 1 April 2013 to 17 March 2017, stole a total of N$2 088 071 million from the company.

According to the summary of facts in the charge sheet, Nawa-Mukena, by means of false pretence, induced MultiChoice to pay the money into her account well knowing that the 80 invoices were falsified.

The State alleges that Kundana did not render any advertising services to MultiChoice and therefore Nawa-Mukena's actions were fraudulent.

Nawa-Mukena, who was remanded on N$50 000 bail with instructions to report to the investigation officer twice every week on Monday's and Wednesday, had her conditions altered.

She was ordered to hand over her travel documents to the investigating officer in the case and was also instructed not to apply for any travel documents until the case is finalised.

Magistrate Ndapewa Celma Amadhila presided while Tatelo Cuthbert Lusepani prosecuted and Advocate Obed Sibiya appeared for Nawa-Mukena.
