Energy Mutodi fined

HARARE - Businessman-cum-musician Energy Mutodi has been fined $150 for failing to secure a firearm.

The colourful musician, who recently sensationally claimed that Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa could succeed President Mugabe by March, faces a 30-day jail term if he fails to pay the fine.

Mutodi pleaded guilty when he appeared before Harare magistrate Victoria Mugwagwa.

Through his lawyer Charles Chinyama, Mutodi pleaded with the courts to pardon him because he was ignorant of the statutory provisions.

He said this was his first brush with the law and that he was a first time offender.

Prosecutor Fransisca Mkumbiri proved that on January 5, Mutodi parked his Toyota Land Cruiser at the corner of 5th Street and Baines Avenue in Harare.

He then disembarked from the vehicle armed with a CZ pistol. He went to a Toyota Corolla that was parked nearby.

He then opened the door and placed the pistol on the dashboard and locked the vehicle. He then drove away in a Toyota Prado that had been parked nearby.

The incident was witnessed by Hebert Mabvundwi, a police officer stationed at Harare Central Police Station.

Mabvundwi then proceeded to Fife Avenue Police Station and teamed up with two constables before returning to the Toyota Corolla.

The detectives found Solomon Sinos standing next to the vehicle and asked him to call Mutodi.

Mutodi returned to the scene, unlocked the vehicle and the pistol was recovered from the glove compartment.

Mutodi was summoned to court today.
