General Court Martial Sentences 2 Soldiers 40 Years Imprisonment Each For Armed Robbery

The Zimbabwe Defence Forces General Court Martial has sentenced two Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) members to 40 years imprisonment each for armed robbery.

The two soldiers, Lance Corporal Tatenda Dzimbanhete and Trooper Wilfred Munesi were sentenced on 19 January.

In a statement this Friday, Director Army Public Relations Colonel Alphios Makotore said five years each of their respective sentences were suspended on condition that they restitute their robbery victim, Simon Arnold of Surrey Farm, of cash amounting to US$16 830 and R600. Said Col. Mokotore:

Two soldiers, members of the Zimbabwe National Army, Lance Corporal Dzimbanhete Tatenda and Trooper Munesi Wilfred were on 19 January sentenced to 40 years imprisonment each by the Zimbabwe Defence Forces General Court Martial for armed robbery.

Five years each of their respective sentences were suspended on condition that they restitute the complainant, Simon Arnold of Surrey Farm near Marondera, cash amounting to US$ 16 830 and R600.

Both were reduced ranks of private and first-year trooper, respectively and discharged from the Zimbabwe Defence Forces with ignominy.

They both pleaded guilty to the charges of armed robbery which they committed on 15 November 2021 at Surrey Farm near Marondera.

The Zimbabwe National Army does not condone cases of indiscipline and misconduct and will continue to pass deterrent sentences on any would-be offenders.

hmmm. i like this, may all cases involving members of the zdf be referd to this honourable court.
any case i mean any case inluding the likes of drunkenness as they bring the name of the force into disrepute. Thumps Up Generals as your subbodinets are now doing anything knowing that the Police and the General Judicial System wont touch them

I WISH THAT ALL SOLDIERS WHO COMMIT SERIOUS CRIMES BE REFERRED TO GENERAL COURT MARSHALS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN CAPTURED.

SENTENCES OF 40 YEARS EACH RESONATE WELL WITH THE CRIME OF ARMED ROBBERY CASES.

WELL-DONE GENERAL COURT MARTIAL. YOU HAVE PROVED THAT YOUR COURT IS NOT CAPTURED LIKE SOME JUDICIAL COURTS IN SOME COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.
