NKOLE MULAMBIA, Ndola
A 34-YEAR-OLD man of Ndola has been sentenced to six months imprisonment with hard labour for stealing a chocolate bar worth K106 from
Before principal resident magistrate Obbister Musukwa on Wednesday was Willie Munsanje of house number 2860 in Pamodzi township. He was charged with theft.
Munsanje stole a bar of chocolate from Shoprite last week.
Magistrate Musukwa said he considered that Munsanje was a first offender who deserved lenience but that the convict was an able-bodied person who should have engaged in productive work to raise money to buy himself chocolate.
“Since you are remorseful for your action, I will sentence you to six months imprisonment with hard labour suspended for two years on condition that you do not commit any offence during this period,” he said.
