A NetOne cashier who stole about $150 million from the mobile network services provider in an airtime voucher scam has been arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC), after going on a spending spree, lavishing the money on expensive vehicles among other things.

According to the country's anti-corruption agency, Daniel Kalira, 39, a cashier at NetOne is said to have stolen approximately $150 million from the country's largest mobile operator in an airtime voucher scam and then used the money to buy several vehicles including a Toyota Hilux GD6 twin cab, three Mercedes Benz sedans and two BMW sedans.

"All the vehicles were recovered by ZACC investigators," a statement from ZACC said. "It is alleged that from January 202 to May 23, 2022, Kalira stole airtime from NetOne by falsifying his sales of airtime on the stock issue vouchers which he dispatched to NetOne sales agents."

"Investigations conducted by ZACC show that on August 15, 2021, the accused allegedly falsified issue voucher number 77064, where he indicated that he dispatched 17,400 airtime cards of $100 each. Instead, Kalira had allegedly dispatched 80,300 cards valued at $100 each depriving NetOne of $7,990,000."

The statement went on to add that Kalira, on January 26, 2022, allegedly falsified stock issue voucher number 77067 where he indicated that he dispatched a total of 5,917 cards of $100 each, whereas, he dispatched 28,416 cards, thus depriving NetOne of $2,250,000.

ZACC said an audit is currently ongoing to ascertain the actual amount that was stolen from NetOne.
