A 32-YEAR-OLD Guruve man was sentenced to an effective five months by Guruve resident magistrate Shingirai Mutiro for duping an ecocash user.

Arunesu Yotamu will spend five months behind bars after she pleaded guilty to the charge.

The state led by Albert Mazhindu told the court that on April 15 the complanaint Naume Gwanzura who is illitterrate requested the convict to but her airtime from her Ecocash wallet.

Yotamu bought the airtime and transferred  $1300 to her mobile phone.

The matter came to light four days latter when the complanaint's nephew checked her balance and saw that the convict duped her.

She filed a police report leading to Yotamu's arrest.
