Masvingo Provincial Magistrate Bishard Chineka sentenced Takunda Maregedze (30) of Kaguvi Street, Aphiri Masvingo to $40 fine or 20days in jail after he was accused of unlawfully smoking dagga.
Prosecutor Nancy Makuvise told the court that on the 6th of October 2016 at around 1530hours, the accused was allegedly spotted in an alleyway by detectives from Masvingo CID who were on deployment around Masvingo town.
The accused was immediately arrested and the stub of partly smoked dagga was recovered and taken as an exhibit.
In passing judgment the Magistrate said that Maregedze acted unlawfully but however the court considered that he is a bread winner in sentencing him.
