Two serial shoplifters fined $150


TWO Bulawayo women were yesterday each fined $150 or one month in prison for stealing goods worth about $286 from Power Sales in Beitbridge.


Miriam Sibanda (43) of Luveve and Alice Maphosa (38) of Gwabalanda were convicted and fined on their own plea of guilty for stealing seven formal trousers, four khaki trousers and six weaves from Power Sales when they appeared before Beitbridge magistrate Gloria Takundwa.

The incident happened on April 16 and the two were only arrested in Gwanda after being nabbed for stealing in another shop.

Sibanda, a single mother of six who earns a living through selling some materials in Musina, said she had stolen the clothes because she wanted to sell them to raise money to pay examination fees for her twins.

Maphosa, who also sells wares in Musina, said she was just tempted to steal.
