GWERU – A 35-year-old man from Ascot in Gweru has been sentenced to 15 years in jail after he made a fake gun and managed to rob two cell phones worth $100.
His was a case of the fish falling from the frying pan into the fire when he made the fake gun because he had failed to pay rent for three months. In order to raise money for rent he then thought of using a fake gun to intimidate and rob people.
Andrew Goboza of Ascot told the court that he had hit a hard rock after going for three months without paying rent. Goboza said that some months ago when he was walking along Gweru heavy industry he picked a metal block which looked like a gun handle and he took it home where he kept it.
On the day in question he took the handle and other metal bars which were at his house and made a fake gun. He even made metal like fake bullets which he inserted inside the fake fire arm. On May 24, 2017 Goboza went to Mint Leaf Lodge at around 1am and approached innocent Moyo who was at the reception purporting to be a customer who wanted to book a room.
Suddenly the accused produced his man-made gun and pointed it at the complainant threatening to shoot him. He then took two cellphones a Samsung Galaxy Pocket and a Nokia 305 which were at the complainant's desk. After robbing the complainant Goboza then ran out of the lodge but fortunately the complainant was quick to realize that Goboza was holding a fake gun and chased the robber. With the help of some passersby they arrested the robber and took him to Gweru Central Police Station.
