Teen steals $1 800 from neighbour and blows it on gambling

Posted by Maveriq

Victor Ncube (18) of Magwegwe, Bulawayo appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Lungile Ncube facing charges of unlawful entry and theft. He pleaded guilty to stealing $1 800 from his neighbour Nomalanga Khumalo, who owns some commuter omnibuses. He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced today.

Ncube told the court:

Your Worship, I walked into the house through the door, I didn’t jump in through the window as alleged. Honestly I had no plans when I stole the money but afterwards I decided to use the money to start a new life. I used part of the money to buy new clothes and a phone. I gambled with a greater part of it. However, I later made a decision to get a passport and go to South Africa to buy clothes for resale. People nowadays invest a lot in fashion so I thought it could be a great business idea since I’m not academically qualified
