Kudzai Mupasi

MASVINGO-A 21-year old Masvingo man was sentenced to nine years in jail for stealing four cattle.
Tinnet Mhache (21) of Matare Village under Chief Chikwanda in Masvingo was convicted on his own plea and was sentenced to nine years by Magistrate Rethagtcetsi Silaigwana.
On October 25,2022, Mhache went to the local grazing lands and found Tichaona Shoko’s cattle grazing unattended.
He separated four cattle from the herd and drove them to Plot number 55 Keppure where his uncle Simbarashe Makara stays. Mhache lied to his uncle that he had bought the cattle.
On January 7,2023, Mhache tried to sell the cattle to Emmaculate Chavani using Makara’s stock card but the deal flopped because Makara denied him access to the stock card. A report was made to the Police leading to Makara’s arrest.
Mhache led the police to the crime scene for indications and the cattle were recovered.
Godknows Mugondo prosecuted.
