12 years for Congolese robber

A Gweru magistrate has slapped a habitual robber with a 12 year jail term for pouncing on a Congolese truck driver. Maloba Kisonga (32) a DRC national, was travelling from South Africa to his country. He briefly stopped at Beitbridge boarder post where he picked up Brighton Nyahuma.

When they reached Gweru, Kisonga indicated that he wanted to take a rest but the accused persuaded him to allow him to drive. He then produced a gun and took the truck and three cell phones. He was arrested later that day in Kadoma.

In his judgement, magistrate Nemadire said he had considered the fact that Nyahuma had served four years in prison for stock theft and had been convicted for robbery and kidnapping in the 1990s.
