A BINGA shebeen queen who was recently sentenced to community service for pummelling a patron with a log for stealing a bottle of tototo, has once again appeared in court, this time for possessing the illicit brew.

Letina Mudenda, 45, from Chisamba Village under Chief Saba, was arrested after police discovered a 1,5 litres of the illicit potent brew at her homestead.

Mudenda, 45, who was yet to complete the 105 hours of unpaid work at Tinde Clinic for the previous crime, was this time charged alongside her husband, Yamba Aleck Mudimba, 59.

The two appeared before senior Hwange magistrate Rose Dube charged with possessing a harmful substance.

The couple pleaded guilty to the charge.

The magistrate warned, cautioned and discharged them.

Prosecutor Charlene Gorerino said on October 6 last year, Constable Mathias Mpande recovered 1.5 litres of tototo at the couple’s homestead and immediately arrested the two accused.
