Foday revealed that the Africell money was different from the sales of the other items.

She stated that at around five in the evening before closing the bookshop, she took the D1,900 to check whether the money was correct before calling her colleague, Elizabeth, to see the money before she would keep it.

She said she called the manager, Isha George, to give her the figure they had but could not get her, adding that she left Elizabeth at the shop and went home.

The following morning, Foday said, Elizabeth called her to inform her that someone had stolen the money.She said she went to the shop and Elizabeth informed her that D200 from the sales money together with D100 and D50 scratch cards were stolen.

The case was adjourned till 7 August 2013, for cross-examination.
