Mbare residents have lamented over the incarceration of three organisers of the New Year’s eve music gig held in Mbare, Harare, who were yesterday jailed for an effective six months for violating Covid-19 national lockdown regulations.
Harare provincial magistrate Mrs Vongai Guwuriro had initially jailed Dhama, born Simbarashe Chanachimwe, Arnold Kamudyariwa (DJ Fantan) and Tafadzwa Kadzimwe (DJ Levelz), to 12 months behind bars, but set aside six months of the jail term on condition they do not commit a similar offence within that period.
In passing sentence, Mrs Guwuriro said fining or committing the trio to perform unpaid work would trivialise the offence.
