Chase Skhuza arrested while performing
Popular Bulawayo artist Nicholas Chase Skhuza was arresting while performing on stage for failing to pay back $2900 the driver he defrauded in 2015. Magistrate Adelaide Mbeure sentenced him to 231 days behind bars. In 2015 Skhuza had been sentenced 24 months in jail after being convicted of defrauding a truck driver in a deal that Skhuza sold him a stand that was not available. The magistrate then suspended 8 months on condition he doesn't commit a similar crime in five years. Further 8 months was suspended on condition he pays back the $2900 he defrauded the driver.
Chase Skhuza after almost three years was brought to court for failing to pay the money. Skhuza argued he had been too sick to do anything but the magistrate felt he had a long time to settle his dues or could have approached the courts seeking additional time.
