Student fined $50 for asking President Mugabe for job in Zimbabwe

A student identified as Advance Musoki who appeared at a Bulawayo magistrate, was on Monday convicted and fined $50 or face two weeks in prison for demanding employment from President Robert Mugabe during the university’s graduation ceremony last Friday.
Musoki who graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce Honours Degree in Risk Management and Insurance from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), pleaded guilty to committing criminal nuisance in contravention of Section 46 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform).

According to All African reports, Prosecutors said the 23-year-old student stood up during the graduation ceremony while demanding for employment uttered the unpleasant words ‘mabasa ngaadzoke President’ (Return to Work) three times, before he was caught and pounced on by State security agencies before he was handed over to the police.
However, during the court hearing Musoki’s lawyer Mehluli Dube from the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) pleaded with the court to give Musoki a non-custodial sentence, which resulted to a fine of $50 or face two weeks in prison.
