Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) organising secretary Partone Xaba was on Thursday sentenced to 525 hours of community service for promoting public violence.
Xaba will do the community service at Tshabalala Police Station starting on 1 August 2022.
He was initially charged with theft of a gun licence, US$14 500 and a laptop from an alleged farm invader, Floyd Ambrose, but was acquitted of the charges.
Xaba was arrested alongside other MRP activists after they demonstrated at a police station over attempts to evict former commercial farmer Brain Davies to pave way for Ambrose.
Ambrose is son-in-law to ZANU PF’s second secretary and former Vice President Kembo Mohadi.
