Ethiopian Airlines Takes Former Employee to Court

April 27, 2017

Ethiopian Airlines has taken its former chief customer service agent to the Harare Civil Court for allegedly defrauding it of $1 500, according to a report by The Herald.

 

According to the Harare, Zimbabwe tabloid, the former Ethiopian Airlines staff, Penelope Machaka appeared before Harare Civil Court magistrate Ms Sharon Chipanga.

 

It is alleged that on September 2, 2015, Machaka received $10 234 as the day's takings from a ticketing agent.

 

Machaka was authorised by the company to deduct $5 746 from the amount, leaving a balance of $4 487 which was to be banked.

 

Instead of banking the whole balance, she allegedly deposited $2 988 into the company account, the court heard.

 

To cover up the shortfall of $1 500, Machaka lied to Ethiopian Airlines that an air ticket worth that amount had been issued. She used the money and failed to reimburse the company on demand.
