Neither is the husband. An offender is defined as someone who is convicted for any crime. Job has never been convicted for any crime and remains innocent. He is not a criminal. Even us the constabulary know that

She was going to get bail as expected. Their target is not the wife. Job is the one they need. Just hope Job will ever taste freedom once again

Uuuuum. Heavy handed. Dzimwe nyaya dzinongoda caution. Ne road dzedu idzi pamwe vainzvenga ma porthole then probably misjudged the distance of oncoming traffic. Or probably was overtaking but once again misjudged distance. Hapana nyaya apa. There should be a plausible reason why she was driving on the right side.

Since when does the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights represent traffic offenders in court?

because this is more than a traffic offence

Normally traffic offenses you get fined and either you pay on the spot or within 7 days at any police station
