Unlicensed driver escapes jail

HARARE - A 41-year-old unlicensed driver, who bumped into Home Affairs minister Ignatius Chombo’s Range Rover, has escaped a jail term after he was fined $450.

The court heard that Shupayi Maxwell Pfupajena, from Harare’s Bluffhill suburb drove his Nissan Champ into the minister’s top-of-the-range vehicle with both cars sustaining minor damages.

Pfupajena was convicted on his own plea of guilt.

He was being charged with driving without a licence, negligence driving, driving an uninsured motor vehicle and failure to display a valid motor vehicle licence.

Harare magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti initially sentenced Pfupajena to seven months in prison before suspending the jail term on condition that he paid a total of $450 fine.

Prosecutor Osar Madhume proved that on November 5, this year, at 8pm, Pfupajena, who was driving his motor vehicle along Sam Nujoma lost control of the car and rammed into Chombo’s car.

Pfupajena failed to produce a valid driver’s licence, leading to his arrest.

Sergeant Matezwa from Avondale Police Station then discovered that Pfupajena’s motor vehicle was not insured and did not have a valid motor vehicle licence.

Checks with the Central Vehicle Registration also proved that Pfupajena was not a licensed driver.

It was also established that it was not Pfupajena’s first time to have a brush with the law after he was previously arrested on the same charges of driving without a licence.
