Magistrate Nxongo suspended three months on condition that Tawanda Shoko restitutes Eat and Lick US$65. Four months were suspended on the condition of good behaviour.
Shoko (23) of 1714 Zone 5, Hopely, Harare, will effectively serve five months in jail should he restitute the US$65 before September 30, 2023.

Shoko received free meals from July to August 2023 when he was arr£sted.
Manjanga discovered the matter after overhearing Inter-Africa employees complaining that Shoko was abusing their employer’s name to get free meals. Masvingo Mirror
