Three Harare men arrested after a high-speed chase by the police were found with 15 goats stolen from five different pens in Mudzi.
The matter came to light at Mutoko Magistrates’ Court where the trio Givemore Reka (30), Tafadzwa Sande (30) and Wise Shuva (30) were sentenced to 30 months’
imprisonment by magistrate Takunda Witness Mtetwa.
They will serve 25 months in prison each after Mtetwa suspended five months on condition of good behaviour.
Prosecutor Nathan Majuru told the court that on June 15 around 12 midnight the trio went on a stealing spree and stole 15 goats from five different pens and
loaded them into their Mazda Familia vehicle registration number AAP 8127.
All the five complainants filed a police report and the police traced the culprits. Police had to fire warning shots during the high-speed chase.
