The Zimbabwe Republic Police is seeking information leading to the arrest of a 32 year old Harare woman, Kudakwashe Unity Mhike, who is wanted in connection with a case of fraud involving over US$800 000.

ZRP national spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said Mhike who was employed as a junior book keeper by Ram Petroleum issued Ram credit cards to her accomplice, Taurai Makumbe a 37 year old adult without following the correct procedures.
