MWENEZI - A 42-year-old Mwenezi woman who smuggled 22 bales of second hand clothes and shoes from Mozambique with a street value of US$4 000 has been fined US$160 or three months in jail.
All the goods were forfeited to the state.
Elisina Chikabvu (42) of Bepere Village under chief Maranda  however, told Mwenezi Magistrate Honest Musiiwa that she did not smuggle the consignment but bought the goods from the Zimbabwean side of the border.
"I did not skip the border into Mozambique to buy the second hand clothes my Worship. I bought them from a supplier at a selling market which is close to the border here in Zimbabwe," said Chikabvu. 
Passing sentence Musiiwa said the fact that Chikabvu failed to produce receipts or the person who provided her with the bales made her guilty.
Chikabvu appeared in court with two other accomplices Nyike Hlongwani (44) and Vengai Zhou (39) who both pleaded not guilty to smuggling and were acquitted after Chikabvu said all the bales belonged to her.
Prosecutor Willard Chasi said on June 3, Chikabvu, Hlongwani and Zhou crossed into Zimbabwe from Mozambique with 20 bales of used clothes and two bales of used foot wear without declaring them to the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority.
The accused used the Sango border post to smuggle the bales into Zimbabwe.
The court heard that Chikabvu then hired Hlongwani's car to carry the contraband to Mwenezi.
Police acting on a tip off ambushed and intercepted the vehicle in Mwenezi and arrested the accused.
The police then impounded the bales as exhibits.
