5 Harare con artists, who allegedly issued out fake drivers’ licences to several unsuspecting prospective drivers in Marondera after posing as officials from the Vehicle Inspection Department (VID), had their bail application quashed by Marondera magistrate Jabulani Mzinyathi last week.

Prosecutor Tariro Chirichena told the court that the suspects were arrested following a tip-off on August 1.

Police recovered VID shirts, a mobile phone line where licence seekers were asked to deposit their bribe money, five fake drivers’ licence discs and a number of driver’s licence photos.

Shirichena said the suspects demanded bribes ranging between $200 and $300 for each licence disc with investigations indicating that several people in other parts of the country could have been duped by the five men using the same modus operandi.
