Mr. Daka called for help from his neighbours because Mululi wanted to run away.

Magistrate: Did you take the items?

Mululi: Yes, but I was caught.

Magistrate: What time was it?

Mululi: It was in the afternoon.

Magistrate: How did you enter?

Mululi: I used a block to break the wall.

Magistrate: What did you want to do with the items?

Mululi: I wanted to keep them as my own because I didn’t have such type of clothes.

Mululi pleaded for mercy from the court saying he is first offender and will never commit a similar offence again.

Magistrate Miti said Mululi caused damage to property of the complainant because of his selfishness.

She said Mululi deserved to be punished because he wanted to deprive the owner of the items.
