    MASVINGO- Magistrate Peter Madiba has ordered Hilda Kandemire Masvino (35) to stay home and make babies instead of spending time engaging in criminal activities.
     The Magistrate first asked Masvino who stays at Zimuto Police Camp whether she was married and if the husband properly takes care of her and the children of which she answered in the affirmative.
    Masvino is married to a Police Inspector based at Masvingo Central.
    "I suggest that if your husband takes care of you, you better stay home and make babies for him rather than going around conning people," said Madiba last Monday after he found Masvino guilty of fraud involving $936.
    She was sentenced to 90 days in prison if she fails to reinstitute the money to the complainants.
    It was the State case that Masvino on January 27, 2017 approached Tichaona Zimunya of Rujeko C in Masvingo pretending to have tomatoes for sale and she was given $750 and 50 empty crates for packaging.
    After some days the complainant checked for his tomatoes from the accused and that is when he discored that he has been conned and his empty crates were at Masvino's residence at Zimuto Camp. Upon confronting her she gave him back $300 leaving a balance of $450 leading to the Zimunya making a Police report.
    In the second count sometime in July this year Masvino approached Miriam Mhlanga who also resides at Zimuto Police Camp pretending to have a buyer for 80 chickens valued at $486 at Continental Restaurant in the CBD.
    When they arrived at the restaurant they did not find the buyer and Masvino pleaded with Mhlanga to leave the chickens with her as the buyer would come later. After Mhlanga left her chickens Masvino sold them to another buyer and converted the money to her own use leading the complainant to report the matter to the Police.
    Masvino was arrested on 18 August 2017 and nothing was recovered
    Masvino pleaded guilty to all the charges and was given until January 31 2018 to pay back the complainants failure of which she will be given as custodial sentence.
