Fuel dealer fined $250

MUTARE - A fuel dealer has been fined $250 for operating a service station without a licence. 

Allen Buzuzi, 29, of Sakubva, was convicted on his own plea of guilt by magistrate Innocent Bepura.

He was being charged with contravening chapter 13:22 of the Petroleum (liquefied petroleum gas) Act as read with section 10 (1) of Statutory Instrument 57 of 2014 for operating a gas retail shop without a licence. It was the State’s case that police detectives identified as Mugawa and Kamota approached Buzuzi at his fuel retail outlet on 21/23 Second Street in Mutare central business district and checked his documentation.

He could not produce a Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority licence.

Buzuzi faces an alternative 30-day imprisonment if fails to pay the fine.

Christina Mwenga was prosecuting.
