Primrose Nyeri Mwangi is a Kenyan business woman aged 40, who hacked and stole 120 Million Dollars.
Primrose Nyeri Mwangi was accused of committing fraud in a Harare court for allegedly breaching into Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund’s (Zimdef) bank accounts and taking $120 million.
Only $30,000 of stolen money have been found thus far, after the National Building Society cancelled one of the transactions.
She also serves as the director of Primkett Travels, and if convicted, she might face serious prison time.
According to the court, Mwangi collaborated with a group of associates to get access to Zimdef’s computer networks and use approval numbers to move huge amounts of cash to their personal accounts.
According to Zimbabwean media sources, the prosecution asserted on Tuesday, January 10, that somewhere between December 1 and December 29 last year, Madam Mwangi colluded with Gerald Pondai, Prosper Hove, and other staff in their crime ring to obtain entry to Zimdef’s computer data systems and, as a result, to Zimdef’s ZB Bank and CBZ accounts.
The plan was discovered on December 28 after a source revealed the deceit in an email to Zimdef.
According to bank documents, $120 million was stolen from CBZ Bank and Zimdef ZB Bank accounts.
