Thabani Skoko a  31 year old man from Lukosi in Hwange was on December 27 sentenced to three months in prison with labour for the illegal sale of wild meat.

He was nabbed on Christmas day at Cross Dete while illegally selling dried kudu and impala meat to truck drivers.

Hwange provincial magistrate Sharon Rosemani presided over the case while Memory Munsaka was prosecuting.

Shoko was arrested for contravening section 59(b) of the Parks and Wildlife Act Chapter 2014 of 1996 which is the removal of game meat from one place to another without a permit.

He was found in possession of 44 bundles of dried game meat weighing 10 kilogrammes and confessed to illegally hunting for meat in Hwange National Park.
