K480,000 fine for driving without licence


The Lilongwe Senior Resident Magistrate Court has ordered a 30-year-old man to pay K480,000 fine or to serve 21 months in prison with hard labour for driving an un-roadworthy vehicle without driver’s license.

The convict who has been identified as Julius Pofera committed the crime on 3rd July, 2017.

According to police prosecutor superintendent Basmeal    Azaonenji, a traffic officer stopped Pofera in Lilongwe where he was driving a minibus which had 20 passengers on board.

“The road traffic police found the convict with four offences to answer which included driving a motor vehicle without a driver’s license and driving a vehicle that had no certificate of fitness and insurance,” he said.

After he was found guilty, the convict asked the court to be lenient with him as he was a first offender and breadwinner for his family.

But Azaonenji told the court to give the convict a stiff punishment for putting people’s lives in danger.

He added that people like him are the ones fuelling road accidents in the country.

Later, the driver was told to pay K480,000 fine or he will be imprisoned for 21 months.

Pofera comes from Mzuza village in the area of Traditional Authority Tambala in Dedza district.
