A Zimbabwean man, 29, who posed as a secret agent where top security officials were holding a briefing before President Robert Mugabe’s recent rally in Mutare, has been jailed for two months, a report says.
According to New Zimbabwe.com, Elmos Sigelagelani, pleaded guilty to criminal nuisance charges after he masqueraded as a Central Intelligent Organisation (CIO) agent on June 15 at Sakubva stadium.
He was arrested by secret agents after he entered the VVIP section, interrupting the top security officials meeting.
Passing down judgement, magistrate Lazarus Murendo sentenced the convicted Sigelagelani to two months in jail but also gave him a $200 fine option.
Mugabe kicked off a nationwide series of rallies early this month to drum up support from youth ahead of elections in 2018.
The nonagenarian planned to hold 10 pre-election rallies in the country’s 10 provinces. The rallies will be held from June to October. He has already been to Marondera and Mutare.
