Dunmore Ngorima (21) was sentenced by Concession magistrate Joshua Nembaware yesterday.

Nembaware suspended six months on condition of good behaviour.

Ngorima pleaded guilty to the charge and told the magistrate that he committed the offenses due to hunger and love of beer.

"Your worship please forgive me l did commit these offenses due to hunger, and my love for beer spare me a jail sentence please," lamented Ngorima.

Prosecutor Precious Khanye told the court that from January to March Ngorima duped bar tenders and shopkeepers.
