    Bikita man found with gun at road block


    MWENEZI - A 29 year old man from Bikita was recently arrested by Police at a roadblock after he was found with a Norino pistol that was not declared as he returned from South Africa to Zimbabwe.
    Shackmore Muzvidzwa who is a director of Danmore Security in South Africa (SA) was fined $120 when he appeared before Mwenezi Resident Magistrate Honest Musiiwa.
    Muzvidzwa of Mukamwi Village under chief Budzi in Bikita was arrested at the 96km peg along Masvingo-Beitbridge highway.
    Muzvidzwa pleaded guilty before Mwenezi magistrate Honest Musiiwa.
    "I did not think there was need for me to notify officers at the Zimbabwean border since the SA police had cleared me to go with my gun. I beg for a lenient sentence my worship since I committed this offence unknowingly," said Muzvidzwa in mitigation. 
    His firearm and eight rounds of ammunition were forfeited to the State. 
    Willard Chasi prosecuted.
