A motorist who knocked down a policewoman at a roadblock saying he was frustrated for being stopped for the eighth time on the same road was Monday caged 36 months for attempted murder.

 Jimu Sigauke Bahari, 29, of 33 of Zengeza 1, Chitungwiza pleaded guilty to attempted murder charges when he appeared before magistrate Livingstone Chipadze.
 Bahari knocked down Theodora Chiparawasha, 32, at 162km-peg Harare-Mutare road.

Asked why he committed the offence, Bahari said “Your Worship I beg for leniency I was frustrated by close to 10 roadblocks which I came across. From Harare I was stopped eight times”.

But in his ruling, Chipadza said such kind of behaviour must not be tolerated and therefore it was also the duty of the court to protect on duty officers.
