A 21-YEAR-OLD woman escaped jail term after she was convicted of illegally possessing 10 bottles of Bron Cleer cough syrup.
Provincial magistrate Josephine Sande, however, warned Chipo Machaka not to repeat the offence and told her to find something legal to do for a living.
Prosecuting, Francisca Mukumbiri proved that Machaka was found in possession of 10 bottles of Bron Cleer at home in Warren Park.
“The accused was found selling 10 bottles of Bron Cleer at her residential place without prescription or license to sell it,” she said.
In her defence, Machaka said the medicine was not hers.
“I am pleading guilty your worship, I was just selling the Bron Cleer for my sister who is Rusape,” said Machaka.
