Dj Fantan, Tinashe Chanachimwe (Dhama) and Levels (Tafadzwa Kadzimwe) have pleaded guilty for organising the 31 December cross over gala at Matapi hostels in Mbare, attended by over 1000 people in Mbare.

The trio was charged for ‘partaking and convening a public gathering during a national lockdown in contravention of section 5(3)(a) of Statutory Instrument 77 of 2020.

The three admitted to breaching Covid-19 regulations and their lawyer has mitigated their conviction by telling the court that they are all first time offenders who should not be taken to jail as they will be exposed to hard core criminals.

Meanwhile the police have arrested over 50 people who attended the gala including the organisers. However the three are yet to be sentenced to prison.
