BUILDERS Home retail shop was yesterday fined $17 000 by a Harare magistrate for wilfully not banking cash.
The retail shop, which was represented by its administrator Charles Mutseka, pleaded guilty to contravening sections of the Bank Use Promotion Act when it appeared before regional magistrate Hosiah Mujaya.
However, Builders Home will pay $15 000 after magistrate Mujaya suspended $2 000 on condition that the company will not be found guilty of the same charges in the next five years.
