Man Jailed For Wearing Army Uniform

A 20 year old Banket man, Malvern Makuranga was jailed for one year by Chinhoyi magistrate Letwin Rwodzi for wearing Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) uniform.

Mukaranga of Templeton Farm, Banket, who is employed at UMC Gold Mine, was arrested on March 7 after he was found wearing a ZNA uniform. He was charged with unlawful possession or wearing of an army uniform. Makuranga pleaded guilty to the offence. He said he did not know that he was committing an offence by wearing the uniform that belonged to his older brother who works for the ZNA in Mutare. Mukaranga said he wore the uniform because he wanted free transport because he did not have bus fare from Banket to Chinhoyi.

Rwodzi slapped Makuranga with a one-year prison sentence. However, he will spend nine months after three months of his sentence were wholly-suspended for five years.
