Police are working with Interpol to assist them in locating two First Oil Company (Private) Limited directors believed to have fled allegations of obstructing the course of justice after they reportedly connived with CMED (Pvt) Ltd managing director Davison Mhaka to cook up papers showing how $2,7 million in a botched fuel deal was spent.
The pair, Alex Kudakwashe Mahuni and Lynon Gilbert Katunga, are believed to have manufactured fake documents together with Mhaka through an IT expert in South Africa to conceal the case.
A senior police officer yesterday said they were aware that the pair was still in South Africa and were still gathering more intelligence with the help of Interpol.
National police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi recently said the manhunt for the two was still on.
“Alex Kudakwashe Mahuni and Lynon Gilbert Katunga are wanted persons in a suspected case of money laundering, which is contravening Section 8 (2) of the Money Laundering and Proceeds of Crime Act Chapter 9:24,” he said. herald
