Barclays’ Pamela Gondwe has Stolen K7m

Sources at Barclays Bank Zambia have revealed that the bank’s employee, Pamela Gondwe, has stolen a total of K7 million from the Longacres branch.

Gondwe, an entrepreneur who is also the author of a book titled “Tears in a Suitcase” launched in 2016, got hold of the money by virtue of her employment as the employer entrusted her with keys for the Vault.

Instead of safeguarding the employer’s money, Gondwe decided to fete herself, obviously with instigation from her Nigerian boyfriend, and got away with different amounts of money in pounds, euro and dollars as well as a K250,000 cash and vanished.


There has not been any statement from the bank yet.

Gondwe recently disclosed in a profile interview with Zambia Daily Mail that “I am a traveller and I want to explore the beautiful unknown lands and be part of the magnificent world. I have this desire to shake the dust of this crummy little town off my feet, get on the place and go to see the world!”

Could this have been the motivation for her theft of the bank’s money? It will be known as the story unfolds.


Sources further say Pamela left the country the same day she stole the money via Ethiopian Airlines to East Africa.

      Kikikikikiko! This can only happen in Zambia. A bank giving the keys to the safe to one person? Takwaba. Usually there are a number of people with different keys so that to open you have to bring all of them together

      • Clever

        That’s is very true ..even in zambia they can’t give one person all the keys to the safe or the bank breach ..she was working with someone ,and to make matters worse she’s just a cashier

    Well she is innocent until proven guit by the courts of law

    • Chibe Chibe

      But the way the story has been written its like the reporter is convinced she stole the money even before the court has heard the case.

      • Bigboss

        Ayy there was CCTV that shows her taking the money. And people are saying she maybe be innocent. How, how? ๐Ÿค”

    Pam, we all want a good life but not when we cannot afford it. You have missed the opportunity to enjoy simple pleasures. Clearly, with your lavish lifestyle, you ran out of fantasy and abused the trust that was vested in you by your employer. Bakashana, take it easy, tafimbwa lubilo. Here’s some advise, read 1st Thessalonians 4:11 and Mark 8:36, because you’re still a child of God, and I trust you can transfer that money back from wherever you are at the minute. Right now, you’re a criminal but do the right thing to redeem yourself. I trust you will do the right thing. God bless!

  60. Star Aliance World Traveller

    Barclays Bank should have many accomplices to Pamela. I read another article that she managed to transfer or deposit some money at the Airport Branch Barclays Bank before she left. Today, I just read that she wired K4.5 million to her Nigerian boyfriend. But wires take about 2-4 days to clear. And if she did it through Barclays, they have the right to stop such transfer. As they became Ware of the theft on the same day she allegedly stole it. Then if she sent the money to he Nigerian boyfriend. She should be foolish as she doesn’t even know who the guy is, the majority use false identities and she may never find him again. What a shame to be lured like that. Travelling and exploring the world is nit about stealing.. You can’t enjoy anything as a figutive. But working hard and earning genuinely is the only key to enjoying travel. We did it and we travelled extensively u til we got fed up of flying… So you Zambian girls dreaming of places you have never been too, don’t think that K7 million is a lot of money to enable you travel around the world. It isn’t, worse still stolen money is just too little to travel with, or invest in a foreign country… Very shameful she is, robbing her own country for a Nigerian boyfriend. Sies.

  65. Michael Franklin

    There are many Pamela Gondwes lurking among Zambian women. They are so eager to to get rich quick they dont care if they have to throw away their destiny in the process. And if the story about Nigerian boyfriend is true, did he bring her up or did her Zambian parents do? It’s true that Nigerian are a lot more intelligent than Zambians but you dont have to give them credit for every bold step a Zambian take.

  67. Twalayagain

    Hey guys, leave this girl alone. She hasn’t stolen from anyone. At least no family is going to suffer as a result of this. Is she the first ONE to steal? NO! We have people in Zambia who have stolen indirectly yet we all not that they have stolen. What have we said or done about them? Big fishes who came from rugs and from nowhere they sticking rich, own properties and so on, we just ask ourselves were they got them. Now is Pamela, it has become a big thing. Clever girl Pamela, go and enjoy. At least you are not like these other women who like kukongola anything, even lipstick ya K20 and fail to pay. Well do you!

    If the camera captured her, then I expected that there should be someone to immediately see her on the screen. Does it mean those cameras are decoration and are only used as a point of reference when theft has occurred or maybe the CCTV security man was dosing or maybe Pamela gave her part of the money
