Nyasha Mugwidi (28) of Ridgemont has been sentenced to 12 months in prison by the Gweru Magistrates Court following his conviction for theft.
In a statement the ZRP said the incident occurred on the morning of May 30, 2024. The victim, Arnold Chiremba (29), was preparing to leave for work from his residence in Old Ascot, Gweru. He briefly left his bicycle unattended at the front of his house while he went to the toilet. During this time, Mugwidi seized the opportunity to steal the bicycle and left the scene unnoticed.
Upon discovering the theft, Chiremba immediately reported the incident to the police. The following day, on May 31, at approximately 1700 hours, Chiremba spotted his bicycle at Kudzanai bus terminus. After inquiring about its owner, he was informed that Mugwidi had brought it there. Chiremba then notified the police, which led to Mugwidi’s arrest. The bicycle, valued at USD 180, was successfully recovered.
Mugwidi was sentenced to 10 months imprisonment for the theft. Additionally, a previously suspended two-month sentence was activated, resulting in a total effective imprisonment of 12 months.
