A BALD-HEADED, but heavily bearded Harare man, Robert Boyiboyi, was yesterday fined $100 for criminal nuisance after pictures of him which were shot while he was in police uniform went viral shortly after members of the Johane Masowe weChishanu allegedly assaulted police officers in Budiriro, Harare.

Harare magistrate Tsatsawani Ndaba ruled that should Boyiboyi fail to pay the fine, he must serve three months in prison.

Prosecutor Patience Chimusaru told the court that sometime between March and June 6 this year, Boyiboyi was at his workplace in a beauty parlour when a customer brought in a Zimbabwe Republic Police grey shirt for alteration by a tailor who operated in the same salon.

The court heard that Boyiboyi, who is self–employed as a barber in the salon at Westlea Shopping Centre, took the shirt and put it on. He then requested one Progress Tirivangasi to take photographs of him putting on the said shirt.

On June 3, Boyiboyi’s photograph was circulated on various social media including Facebook and whatsapp, accompanied by a caption which mocked the police force.

Boyiboyi, who was represented in court by Harare lawyer Tungamirai Chakurira, was arrested by the police after the picture went viral.

  1. The customer who brought that grey uniform should also be charged for allowing è bearded guy to put on the uniform.

  2. kikikikiki Bhoyibhoyi angopindawo crossfire ko kana aiita test drive hembe telor awone kuti yaita here unotoshaya kuti zvirikumbofaba sei

  3. It’s not clear who the CUSTOMER who brought in the ZRP shirt for alteration was. We need to know who that customer was.

    It’s also not clear who the tailor was and whether or not Boyiboyi took the shirt with the tailor’s permission.

    Anyhow, I like the charge though, ‘criminal nuisance’ – I would have had a problem with them charging him for impersonating a police officer
