A Harare man was slapped with a three-month jail term for impersonating a police officer while driving without a licence.

Daniel Chibvongodze (29) appeared before Bindura magistrate Ethel Chichera and was slapped with $2 000 fine or three months in jail.

Prosecutors said Chibvongodze was last week intercepted by police manning a roadblock along the Bindura-Shamva highway and was asked to produce a driver's licence.

He lied to the officers that he was a cop based at the Police General Headquarters.

The police officers insisted that he should produce his police identity card, which he failed, leading to his arrest.
