In a tale that seems stranger than fiction, a Zimbabwean airport security officer paid a massive US$400 000 to her pastor as tithing. The woman had pulled off a real-life money heist and stolen a massive US$2 million from a Pakistani national who was smuggling the money out of the country in hard cash.
However, 31-year-old Roselyn Dunga was undone when her then-boyfriend snitched on her to the police after she cut him out of her newfound wealth.
According to Zimlive, Dunga, who was employed as a security screener at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport, pulled off the almost perfect crime last year.
Sometime in October 2021, Dunga was monitoring the x-ray machine for suspicious cargo and dangerous weapons at her work station.
While going through the monotonous routine of her shift, the security officer was stunned when she saw five suitcases filled with cash.
Instead of alerting her supervisors to the crime in progress, Dunga let four bags through without incident and took the remaining bag for herself.
When she completed her shift, Rosemary Dunga somehow managed to walk out of the international airport with the stolen bag.
After getting home, she broke open the locked bag. To her shock, the bag was filled with stacks of US$100 bills. The money totalled US$2 million in cold hard cash.
