DOVES Funeral Services branch in Gweru which was last week arraigned before the courts on allegations of operating two-way radio stations without a valid licence has been acquitted of the charges.

Company secretary, Brian Vito had appeared before Gweru provincial magistrate Pathekile Msipa facing charges of operating radio stations without a licence as outlined in the Postal and Telecommunications Act.

The funeral firm argued the radios were now obsolete as they were last used several years ago to communicate with the company’s drivers.

In delivering judgment Msipa said the radios had ceased to be operational and that the state had failed to prove they were functioning without licences.

It was the State case that on November 6 2013, Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe representative in Harare, Godfrey Robert, visited Doves offices in Gweru and issued the funeral company with an order to terminate use of its radios.

On September 2 last year, Robert discovered that the funeral company had not complied with the service termination order and was still in possession of two base set radio stations without a valid licence.

Robert then reported the funeral firm to the police.
