A Harare magistrate has jailed for six months the trio which organised an illegal New Year’s Eve musical gala which attracted thousands of fans in Mbare despite a government ban on such activities on the night.

Provincial magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwuriro sentenced DJs Fantan and Levels including their sponsor known as Damma to 12 months in prison for flouting the COVID-19 regulations.

The trio had pleaded guilty to partaking and convening a public gathering during a National Lockdown in contravention of Section 5(3)(a) of the Public Health (Covid-19 Prevention and Containment) Regulations of Statutory Instrument 77 of 2020.

Magistrate Muchuchuti-Guwuriro, however, has sentenced the trio to 12 months imprisonment and suspended half of the sentence for good behaviour by not wasting the court’s time after pleading guilty.
