A notorious Robber who terrorised pedestrians and passengers in Marlborough and Mount Pleasant suburbs was sentenced to 58 years behind bars yesterday by Harare magistrate Grace Takundwa.

Bruce Kudzaishe (23) who is of no fixed abode pleaded guilty to 25 counts of robbery.

Takundwa suspended 10 years on condition of good behaviour for five years while an additional 8 years were suspended on condition that he restitutes the complainants by April 30.

Prosecutor Mercy Ndingadii told the court that at a date not known to her Kudzaishe has been using a silver Honda Fit registration number AFB 6146 to rob passengers and pedestrians in Mount Pleasant and Marlborough suburbs.

In mitigation the robber told the magistrate to jail him since he needed to rest in prison.

"Just give me a custodial sentence so that l take a rest in robbing people while in prison," he said.
