A Harare man-Brian Mapute who claimed to be a CAPS United player, appeared in court on Friday after being found in possession of 700 pirated DVDs.

Mapute pleaded guilty to contravening the Copyright and Neighbouring Act, state controlled Herald reported.

Mapute told Harare magistrate Lazini Ncube that his club last paid its players in December last year and he was selling the DVDs to make ends meet.

Ncube sentenced Mapute to six months in prison before suspending two months for five years on condition of good behaviour.

The remaining four months were suspended on condition that Mapute completed 140 hours of community service at Hatcliffe Primary School.
