Two men jailed for stealing bicycle

236

The Mulanje First Grade Magistrate’s court has handed prison sentences to two men who stole a bicycle.

The two Sinodeni Sompho and Samson Sayenda have been sentenced to 10 years and seven years in prison respectively.

The court heard that on October last year at Livetere village the two robbed Mazunzo Mulatho of his bicycle and ran away.

The victim recognised Sinodeni and reported the incident at Chambe Police Unit. Officers from the unit arrested the two and recovered the bicycle in the process.

Appearing in court, they both pleaded not guilty but after police paraded witnesses, His Worship Smart Maruwasa found them guilty and convicted them.

In submission, the prosecuting officer Sub Inspector Annock Fumbo asked for a stiffer penalty describing the offence as dangerous.

Fumbo also said Sinodeni showed that he is stubborn since he has previously been convicted for other dangerous offences.

His Worship Smart Maruwasa agreed with the state and sentenced Sompho to 10 years in jail and Sayenda to seven years in prison and the court hoped the sentences would deter would-be offenders.

Sompho comes from Livetere village while Sayenda comes from Shaibu village both of Traditional Authority Nkanda in Mulanje.

  6. I can see where all this poverty in our country is coming from. We have laws that can never transform our country for better. It is logically poor to imprison a person for 10 years for stealing a bicycle and imprison some one for millions or billions of kwachas. Koma adzapezeka mtsogoleri amene akhoza kudzakonza zinthu mdziko lathuli? I think we are still in the total darkness. Our education is not even giving us any bit of logic on issues around us. I hope the British shud come back and take us again. One thing they shud do to us, they shud recognize us as human beings who like them too needs recognition and respect for their humanity. Zachikudazi ndithu zalephera. Zangobweretsa umbava, tsankho komanso ulesi ndi nkhanza. Zoti azathu a kupanga ma amendments to laws that have negative impact to their security, interests and development. Pamene ife ma amendments omwe timachita ndi okhaokhawo oteteza ma interests a okhawo akuti ruling party. Total Shame. Pliz Britain don’t give us your money but let us be one of your state in your vast Kingdom.
