Harare regional magistrate Mr. William Bhilar, however, suspended two years on condition that Katapa would not commit a similar offence in the next five years.

It is the State case that Katapa, who was employed as a guard at a local company in Graniteside, Harare, unlawfully took a freightliner belonging to his company and drove it towards Epworth.

It is further alleged that the vehicle got stuck in the mud and Katapa was arrested while trying to remove it from the mud.
