Nyahungwe appeared before a Guruve magistrates courts on Wednesday pleading guilty to the charge of impersonating a soldier and was remanded in custody to today for sentencing.

Prosecutor Spiwe Makarichi alleged that on June 2 Nyahungwe was intercepted at a police roadblock in Guruve where he was putting on a 1-2 infantry battalion t-shirt.

He drew the attention of soldiers who were part of the roadblock  who enquired if he was a soldier.

The suspect lied to the  soldiers that he was indeed a soldier but failed to give his force number.

Upon being interrogated he revealed that he was a vendor in Harare and had been offered the t-shirt by his brother who is a soldier.
