TWO Bulawayo teenagers have been slapped with 15 months in jail after they stole a mobile phone worth 6000 Rands so that they sell it to buy food.

Emmanuel Tedius Ndlovu (18) and Brian Moyo (18) pleaded guilty to theft  before Bulawayo magistrate Nomasiko Ndlovu.

They were sentenced to one year three months. Six months of the sentence were suspended for five years on condition of good behaviour.

On December 3 Ndlovu, Moyo and another accomplice still at large were at  Registrar General's  Offices  in Bulawayo when they ganged on Simon Nyathi before searching and stealing his mobile phone.

They were arrested  by Police officers on patrol in Makokoba while in possession of Nyathi's mobile phone.
