S v Nzimande and another (1999) JOL 5117 (T)

Findings: Accused (17 and 19) were convicted of theft for cutting down a tree and made poles (R400) from the wood. Court held that sentence of 12 months imprisonment is too harsh as value of property stolen, age (and also there was no probation officer report) should be considered. Sentence replaced with fully suspended 6 months imprisonment.
