A 17 year old student at Neshuro High School in Mwenezi was sentenced to 10 months in jail for breaking into a house and stealing R6 550, buddie airtime worth RTGS$150 and US$250.
On April 19, 2019 the 17 year old boy went to Ndewera Nyengera’s homestead situated at Neshuro Village and broke a window and entered the bedroom.
After investigations were made US$209, R2810, RTGS245, 70 and buddie airtime worth RTGS$150 were recovered which led to the arrest of the boy.
After appearing before Mwenezi Resident Magistrate Honesty Musiiwa the accused pleaded guilty and was slapped with 10 months in prison on condition that he does not commit a similar offence in the next five years.
The Magistrate warned him that he deserved a jail sentence after the crime he had committed and was only saved by his age.
“I do not know what came over me, I stole the money and used a certain amount to buy clothes and a cellphone,”said the accused.
