A MAN who admitted brewing illegal alcohol (kwaso) way back in 2008 has been sentenced to one year in jail, Wednesday.
Simon Delemani, who is currently serving a life-time term in relation to a separate matter, entered his guilty plea to the charge of making liquor.
This was in relation to the incident between 8 November 2008 and 11 November 2008 at a settlement in Yandina where he produced liquor without a licence.
Police confiscated 40 kilograms of kwaso in a bucket, a gas bottle and drums at a house in a settlement in Yandina on 8 November 2008.
Magistrate Aulanga told Delemani the maximum penalty for this offence is $30,000.
Since the accused is serving a life time imprisonment for a separate incident, Mr Aulanga said he considered the accused’s guilty plea and therefore imposed a one year jail term.
