Bogus cop nabbed at roadblock

By Simbarashe Sithole

Bid to evade a road block by a Harare man in Bindura backfired for him after he failed to produce a police identity card.

The matter came to light at Bindura magistrates courts yesterday where Daniel Chibvongodze (29) appeared before magistrate Ethel Chichera.

The magistrate slapped Chibvongodze with $2000 fine failure to pay would earn him three months in jail.

The court heard that on Wednesday Chibvongodze was intercepted by police manning a roadblock along Bindura -Shamva highway and was asked to produce a driver’s license.

He lied to the officers that he was a cop working at Police general headquarters.

The police officers insisted that he should produce his police identity card but he failed leading to his arrest.

Patience Chair represented the state.
