The Lilongwe Magistrate Court on Friday slapped driver Mwamadi Assani K60,000 for being found guilty of failing to comply with laws of Malawi especially that when a presidential motorcade is passing all vehicles should stop.
The court heard that on Thursday, Mwamadi aged 27 while driving a Tata Registration Number NU 6411 deliberately cruised heavily past a vice president’s motorcade.
Mwamadi never bothered to stop despite effort by the security vehicles to block him instead he wanted to hit the first lead vehicle of the Veep’s convoy.
The court heard that the convoy had to stop to allow Assani pass with his cruising truck.
The Magistrate in passing judgment said the behaviour of Assani put the life of the second citizen at risk hence the fining of K60, 000.
Mwamadi pleaded guilty to the offence, paid the fine and cruised back on the road.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
