By A Correspondent- A Bulawayo man, Noel Tshuma, was arrested after he returned to his victim’s house wearing the clothes he stole from the same house.
It is reported that on October 4 this year at around 7 PM, Tshuma smashed the bedroom window of Mr Sandile Ntshali’s house, entered and robbed Nrshali of his 21-inch television set and a suitcase that was full of clothes all valued at R 5000. The victim told the court:
On the 6th of October, when I was home, the accused person came wearing a grey shirt and a grey trouser which were some of the clothes that were stolen and he ordered me to cover my face so that I don’t recognise him. I immediately called the police leading to his arrest.
The accused pleaded not guilty to all charges before Western Commonage magistrate Ms Tancy Dube who sentenced him to four years in prison and suspended one on condition that Tshuma does not commit a similar offence within the next three years.
