CourtHe was later caught and the court found him guilty of house breaking which is contrary to section 309 of the penal code and theft which is contrary to section 278 of the penal code.

In mitigation, the convict asked the court to exercise leniency when passing judgment as he was a first offender.

However, a state prosecutor said the offence is serious hence the convict deserves a stiffer to deter others from committing the same offence.

Midima Senior Resident Magistrate then sentenced Muhammad to four years imprisonment with hard labour.

Muhammad hails from Makwale village T/A Kapeni in Blantyre.
