Mau Mau spared jail

HARARE - Stalin Mau Mau, a former boxing promoter, will perform 175 hours of community service at Rhodesville Police Station for negligent driving.

Magistrate Blessing Murwisi sentenced Mau Mau to six months imprisonment, of which one month was wholly suspended for 175 hours of community service at Rhodesville Police Station starting Wednesday.

Mau Mau was also ordered to pay $300 or face three months in prison for driving without a valid driver’s licence.

The 59-year-old Zanu PF stalwart was found guilty on his own plea of guilt last week.

He said he had a United Kingdom driver’s licence which he said he could produce had the court requested for it.

Prosecutor Barbra Ndoro argued that Mau Mau could have regularised the foreign licence to get permission to drive.

Charges against Mau Mau arose after he hit John Mawiro, 50, a cyclist, resulting in the loss of two of his teeth.

In mitigation, the former boxing promoter said he took Mawiro to the police immediately after the accident and promised to cover all medical expenses.
