State Withdraws Fraud Charges Against Socialite Mai Titi

The State has withdrawn fraud charges against comedian Felistas Murata, also known as Mai Titi, after she repaid the complainant’s US$10,000.

The withdrawal of charges took place before Harare magistrate Ms Apolonia Marutya, The Herald reported.

According to the State’s case, in September 2022, Mai Titi allegedly misrepresented to Rachel Mhuka that she needed US$10,000 for a business venture and offered her a Mercedes Benz as collateral. However, the vehicle did not belong to Murata. Mhuka gave her the money, but Murata later claimed that the Mercedes Benz was not hers and instead provided an Audi Q5 as collateral.

Murata again withdrew the Audi Q5 and replaced it with an invalid passport as surety. When Mhuka discovered that the passport Murata gave her was invalid, she confronted Murata, who returned the second vehicle.

In January of this year, police seized the car, claiming it had been stolen from Else Event Car Hire. The company had reported Murata for theft of trust property. She was sentenced to 12 months in prison of which six were suspended on condition that she doesn’t commit a similar offence in the next 5 years.
