Sunday News took the time to talk to a convicted ra_pist who is now a seasoned motor mechanic who can tackle any engine in front of him a skill he attained while incerated.
The publication visited the stall with Mtunzi Sibanda who cheerfull helped them through the skill he has attained while in jail. Mthunzi who was explaining the auto car engine would repeatedly explain to his visitors how a car engine functions without getting tired.
Speaking about his crime and his rehabilitation and his new love for cars, Mtunzi said:
I was convicted for r_ape. I was initially given 15 years but the prison takes a third of my sentence so effectively I have to serve 10 years. I have served six years and eight months so I will be out in 2022,
…I used to drive a family car. I’m initially from How Mine but I stayed in Lobengula, Nkulumane 12 and Pumula when I was in Bulawayo. I never had the slightest interest in motor mechanics before I came here. Fortunately for me at least I was a driver when I was on the outside. But I was just interested in driving the cars and thought that the mechanics around how they operated were just too complicated. I thought I could never master it but when I came in here that’s when I started to have an interest. Now the passion and interest I have in a car is just incredible. I cannot even describe it but if you give me a car I can demonstrate the kind of passion I have.
The rehabilitation officer responsible for Sibanda heaped praises on the promising convict according to Sunday News.
