Following his plea of guilty to the offence of theft, Abdoulie Gibba and an employee of Maintenance Services Agency, was on the 27th March 2009 sentenced to four-months mandatory jail term.

In his judgement, Magistrate Mbake told the court that the convict's plea for mercy had been heard and considered, but it was the opinion of the court that the convict deserved some punishment as a deterrent. He stated that the convict was an employee of MSA and that the convict's decision to steal from the said institution was indeed a betrayal of trust reposed on him by his employer.
