A 44-YEAR-OLD Kadoma woman, Isata Mukova, has been sentenced to a nine-year jail term for stocktheft after she sold 36 beasts entrusted to her by her daughter-in-law.
Woman Steals 36 Cows.

Mukova was convicted of the charge when she appeared before magistrate Takudzwa Gwazemba last week. The court heard that sometime between April 26 2011 and May 28 last year at Linton Farm, Eiffel Flats, the complainant, Sheila Shuro, entrusted her cattle to Mukova as surety for an undisclosed business deal.

It was heard that during that period, Mukova sold some of the cattle without Shuro”s consent after she failed to fulfil her side of the bargain. On May 28 last year, Shuro visited the farm and discovered the theft.

A stock card with serial number 4204198 in the complainant’s name in respect of the 36 head of cattle was produced in court as evidence.

In her defence, Mukova averred that sometime in 2005, she left the country and tasked Shuro to run several business projects at the farm.

Mukova told the court that they later agreed to let her take Shuro’s cattle as full and final payment for the business deal.

Through her lawyer Tinashe Matiyashe of Mangwana and Partners, Mukova argued that she sold the beasts based on that agreement and was shocked when Shuro later claimed ownership of the same cattle.The beasts were valued at $21 600.
