Meet the woman at the centre of Mary Chiwenga’s charges by ZACC. The woman is named Memory Chakuinga.
In the charge sheet, Memory is mentioned as the co-conspirator in the externalisation allegations.
The deals include three state of the art range rovers, a property at a golf range in Pretoria as well as furniture.
During the period of October 2018 to May 2019, Mary would instruct Memory who is a managing director for two SA based companies, to raise pro-former invoices for the purchase of either event chairs, tents or electrical household meters.
The invoices would then be transferred to RBZ bank on the pretext that Mary wanted to purchase these things for consumption in Zimbabwe.
After RBZ transfered the funds, Mary would later divert the funds for other personal purposes.
