Oscar Pambuka spared from serving another jail term

Former television personality Oscar Pambuka was today spared from serving another prison term after a Mbare Magistrate sentenced him to a wholly suspended one-year jail.

Mbare magistrate Mr. Nyasha Vitorini suspended the 12 months for three years on condition that he does not commit another offense involving dishonesty.

Pambuka was taken to court after he attempted to dupe Croco Motors director Mr Chingwena of R36
000. Mr. Vitorini, in sentencing Pambuka, said he noted that he did not benefit from the offense and that the jail term he is serving on his 2018 fraud case would do justice to keep him out of crime.
