Court To Jail Two Women For Stealing in Church - Happynaija.com

Two suspected female thieves appeared before a court on Saturday on allegations of preying on unsuspecting worshippers at various churches in the city and stealing handbags, mobile phones, laptops, and Bibles.

Violet Jaure, 27 and Maria Kawa, 35, both of Chitungwiza,

Zimbabwe were not asked to plead and were remanded in

custody to today for bail ruling, reports Bulawayo24.


It is the State’s case on May 20 this year, Jaure and Kawa went

to a Roman Catholic Church along Wessex Road, Mabelreign in

Harare and snatched Lois Mushonga’s handbag containing goods

worth $1 000. Mushonga reported the matter at Mabelreign Police Station.


On May 27, the accused entered a Salvation Army Church building in Mabelreign

pretending to be genuine worshippers and stole several handbags from a group

of female congregants, who were on choral music practice.

The congregants allegedly lost Bibles, mobile phones and laptops,

among other things, and filed a police report.


On June 1, police raided Jaure’s house following a tip-off and recovered

some of the alleged stolen handbags.


Jaure later implicated Kawa, leading to the recovery of some of

the stolen items including Bibles.
