A thief who was recently released from prison through the presidential amnesty is back in jail after he was involved in another theft after his release.
It is reported that Raison Chenjere (23) of 1084 Chinotimba was rearrested after he stole a bottle of face lotion from OK Supermarket in Victoria Falls.
He was arrested after an alert security spotted that he was hiding something under his armpit and searched him upon which the product valued at $690 was recovered.

The security handed Chenjere to the police leading to his arrest and the stolen product was recovered.
Chenjere pleaded guilty to theft when he appeared before Victoria Falls magistrate Ms Linda Dzvene Wednesday who sentenced him to six months in prison before bringing into effect one month that was suspended in November.
He argued that he stole the lotion to sell it to have money to buy food since he had not eaten anything since his release.
The serial thief had previously been convicted and put in jail for breaking into and stealing at Sawanga Mall in Victoria Falls.
Chenjere had served more than a third of his jail term when he was recently released on Presidential Amnesty.
