A Bulawayo man, Terrence Kuvarega (28), dumped his ‘lover’, Cassandra Munzabwa (18) at a lodge to avoid paying for a room they had booked overnight.
Allegations are that Kuvarega booked a room at Serenity Guest Lodge in Kumalo, Bulawayo, on October 10 at around 11AM.
He then ordered juice, lunch, water bottles and snacks from room service and the total bill amounted to $355.
The next morning Kuvarega told his lover that he was going out for a business meeting and would return,but pulled a no show.
After hours of waiting, Munzabwa communicated with her ‘boyfriend’ who told her to escape, however the plan hit a brick wall as she was nabbed before making a run for it.
The woman, who is a student at a local university, appeared in court facing a making off without payment charge and pleaded not guilty.
Munzabwa appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Adelaide Mbeure who remanded her out of custody on free bail to November 16 for commencement of trial.
The ‘boyfriend’ is still at large.
