Three Soldiers Sentenced To 15 Years In Jail Each For Armed Robbery

Three Soldiers Sentenced To 15 Years In Jail Each For Armed Robbery

Zimbabwe’s court-martial has sentenced three soldiers to 15 years in prison each for armed robbery, theft and unlawful entry.

In a statement, seen by Pindula News, Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Alphios Makotore identified the trio as Lance Corporal Ndlovu Fortune and privates Manyanga Ratiel and Masase Kainos. We prevent the statement below:

GENERAL COURT-MARTIAL SENTENCES THREE SOLDIERS TO 15 EACH FOR ARMED ROBBERY, THEFT AND UNLAWFUL ENTRY

As the military justice and deterrent sentences against rogue elements of the force continue to be dispensed, Lance Corporal Ndlovu Fortune and privates Manyanga Ratiel and Masase Kainos were on 05 March 2022 sentenced to 15 years imprisonment each by the Zimbabwe Defence Forces General Court Martial.

They were convicted of armed robbery, unlawful entry and theft after a fully contested trial before the General Court Martial seating in Bulawayo last week. They had all pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The trio, who were all serving with 4 Infantry Brigade in Masvingo, committed armed robbery, unlawful entry and theft cases in and around Masvingo between January and July 2021. Ndlovu was reduced in rank to private before all three were discharged from the Zimbabwe National Army with ignominy, and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment each for the offences. The Zimbabwe National Army has warned that any of its members caught on the wrong side of the law will face the full wrath of the law.

@Zvimbadzi, BUSH LAWYER & Others HITTING hard on tribalism

it is my wish that Pindula takes extra care on this nice & informative platform

as of late, 2-good weeks to be precise i have chosen to limit my commentary nyangwe zvangu ndichimbo buda musaga but only in retaliation bcause i realised there have surfaced a new FAKE Tkt, i am the real Tkt vanondi ziva i go for ZANU-PF nothing else.

zveuyu ari kungoba maIDs evanhu iii zvakandi khonawo ini kusvika ndaneta now HATE speech yazara among us

i once said the reason why our country is falling behind isn't sanctions or even the REGIME, but the way we treat each other. some just oppose for the sake of opposing uye undyire kuti ndini ndoda kutonga which is not good at all

may we alk unite for tthe betterment of our motherland pliz, shun tribalism zvachose

A gun in the hands of a hungry man is more dangerous than a grenade in the hands of a Well fed person. Expenditure$450,, salary $150,,,, the gun foots the difference,,,, simply reward your servants & save time wasted on your Martial Courts

When this platform was launched I never came across a xenophobic comment but now instead of us focusing on Zim solutions how to thwart our modern predicament bedeviling us we are name calling each other is this going to change things around us .We need pple who are tribalistic tolerance even if some of us steer the honet,s nest .Tichaita Rwanda muno komoda kuenda think twice guys .Pliz chimboonai Hotel Rwanda movie it will help you a lot.Ungaba umshona ,ungaba umndebele u are Zimbabwean never changes bottom line is Rwanda is coming back slowly watchout no to Ndebele ...Shona coldwar of words .Rambai muchiita noise pano if this continues some numbers need to be blocked from this platform Pindula .We are losing the direction pano we are a lose Canon pano an avalanche that will bury us all .Today this must end or I will personally take this further up to Economy board .

I open the comment section with fear and much trepidation on the possibility of reading comments of a tribalistic nature. This platform has become a stage for hate to be propelled across the country and i fear for the younger Zimbabwean generation, in whom the seed of hate is being planted because of a few individuals hell bent on increasing the chasm between tribes.
Tribalism is a form of terrorism! Tribalism has no room in this age!

@ Team Pindula, it is known to me that you require traffic on this platform for it to become a source of income through ad generated revenue, perhaps.
However, the traffic on this site has become the extreme of both ends, highly acidic yet highly bitter. Highly vulgar, highly tribalistic, laced with hate.
For the sake of our little brothers and sisters whom may have learned new ways to insult, new ways to hate, please suspend the COMMENTS SECTION.

#CloseTheCommentsSection.

I write on behalf of my sisters and brothers present here.

We kindly ask you (Pindula team) to suspend the COMMENT SECTION for a while. This has become a tool for tribalism. Some of us here are finding this to be fun.In the longrun this might lead to some other people here present ,finding themselves not to vote/register because of tribalism.

Another issue is on IDENTITY THIEVING.I know you're able to tell that this comment is from a Samsung , itel,huawei etc. Please , do something about it. Your systerm must report like this (username already taken).

I HOPE YOU GOING TO DO SIMETHING . IF THIS PERSIST , SOME OF US WILL NOT COMMENT E.G BUSH LAWYER,ZVIMBAZI,SPONONO,VYBZ KARTEL(original),TKT,JINX,MARK ETC

please comply

YOURS UN-FAITHFUL

@Zvimbazi

Remember the time when Pindula flooded us with so much international news that people couldn't comment anymore?
I'm thinking that's the best possible solution to our problems here so that people won't be able to start the tribalism
