STAFF REPORTER

Nhaka, of Nyamunokora village under Chief Mutasa, will, however, spend nine months in prison after three were suspended on condition that he does not commit a similar offence in the next four years.

He was convicted on his own plea of guilty when he appeared before Nyanga magistrate Ignatio Mhene.

Charges against Nhaka were that on November 22 at around 11am while he was in police custody at Mutasa Police Station for a charge of unlawful entry, police received a tip-off that he was in possession of a large amount of dagga at his homestead.

Police took him to his homestead to look for the said dagga. They found it underneath an old and disused motor vehicle near his bedroom and further charged him.
