Imagine a thief stealing from a police station.
That best sums up a woman who was arrested after she forged her educational qualifications so that she could secure a job in the police force.
The 22-year-old managed to secure a place at ZRP Mkushi training depot and that is were her fraudulent activity surfaced.
Miriam Mawonera was not asked to plead when she appeared before Harare magistrate, Yeukai Dzuda, who remanded her in custody to today pending her bail application.
The police recruitment officers sent her certificates for verification and it is then that they unveiled a shocker.
The ZRP Recruiting Section received her application, which included a Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) Ordinary Level Certificate, for November 2017, with two O-Level passes; English Language (C) and Mathematics (A).
Her true results for November 2017 are English Language (D) and Mathematics A.
It is alleged that she had already been paid a salary of US$600. She is facing fraud charges.
