A female banker identified as Imenda Musialike has fled after allegedly stealing K59,000 from ZANACO Monze Branch.
Police have since launched a manhunt for Imenda who is suspected of arson and theft of K59,000 from a Bank client using a cloned ATM card.
Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo said this is reported to have occurred on 03rd July, 2019 at ZANACO, Monze Branch.
“The suspect is alleged to have set the registry room on fire and some property got burnt. The value has not yet been established,” Ms Katongo said.
She said Imenda 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time officials from the Bank were viewing CCTV footage from the information technology room to establish who could have withdrawn the money using the cloned ATM, she is alleged to have set the registry room located next to the information room on fire in a bid to destroy evidence but the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.
She is currently on the run and investigations have been launched.
Last month, a female Barclays employee identified as Pamela Gondwe fled after staging a heist involving US$ 400,000 and Interpol have since placed her on the International Watch List.
