Tendai Mange
A
22-year-old Kadoma man was recently slapped with 30-days jail sentence by
Masvingo magistrate Dambudza Malunga after being found guilty for stealing US$1
from a handbag.
Talent
Mukwinda was charged with theft as defined in Section (113) (1) of the Criminal
Law (Codifications and Reform) Act: Chapter 9:23.
It
was the State’s case that on April 08, Mukwinda went to Fadzai Mujoni’s work
place, who is employed at the Consumer Council in Masvingo, took US$1 and
RTGS$99 from Mujoni’s handbag which was outside the door of the office on the
ground and went away.
The
accused was seen by Loice Zhou who quickly alerted the complainant and they
both followed Mukwinda.
Mukwinda
was taken to the police and Mujoni recovered all her money.
Mukwinda
told the court that he was drunk on the day in question and he did not really
know what he was doing.
“I
am not a thief but was very drunk and that’s why I acted in that manner” said
Mukwinda.
