Musician Fungisai Zvakavapano on Tuesday escaped prison after a Harare magistrate fined her US$200 for negligent driving.
The 36-year-old gospel diva was also slapped with a three months wholly suspended sentence on condition of good behaviour.
Fungisai was convicted on her own plea when she appeared before Harare regional magistrate Ruramai Chitumbura.
“The accused is hereby ordered to pay a fine of US$200 or face two months in prison.
“A further three months is wholly suspended on condition of good behaviour,” said the magistrate.
The State led by Isheunesu Mhiti told the court the Toita Zvedenga singer failed to manoeuvre while overtaking and hit another vehicle in the outer lane, causing other vehicles to ram into each other.
