UNISWA lecturer cautioned, freed
MANZINI- A University of Swaziland (UNISWA) lecturer who was arrested and charged with drink- driving was cautioned and discharged by the court as the alcohol content in his system was low.
Gerald Marewo (38) of Kwaluseni appeared before Magistrate Sindisile Zwane yesterday.
Marewo pleaded guilty to the offence and told the court that he had a wife and two children who were looking forward to going back to school on Tuesday (tomorrow).
Magistrate Zwane said she was cognisant of the fact that the alcometer reading is important.
She said Marewo’s alcometer reading was 0.41mg/l when the legal limit is 0.38mg/l. "His reading was within the region and he exceeded by only three milligrams. We encourage people to drink responsibly so as not to cause accidents.
"The court will caution and discharge the accused," Magistrate Zwane said.
Marewo was arrested at Coates Valley on September 15, 2012 along the Acacia Street while he was driving a vehicle registered JSD 787 AM.
