SHIVUTE J (LIEBENBERG, J concurring):
 The accused persons were convicted of drunk, violent or disorderly conduct in a public place contravening s 71(1)(h)(i) read with ss1, 57, 71(2), 71(3) and 72 Act 6 of the Liquor Act 1998 upon their own bare plea of guilty
 The conviction is in order. However, the problem lies with the sentence which reads:
‘Fined N$1000 (one thousand) in default 3 three months imprisonment.’
 I directed a query to the magistrate what she meant by the sentence and whether the sentence would have to be shared.
 In response to the query the learned magistrate said he intended to mean that each accused is sentenced to a fine of N$1000 (one thousand) or 3 months imprisonment.
 The concession is correctly made, and the sentence will be amended accordingly. The sentence must be clear and concisely framed for it not to create uncertainty.
 In the result the sentence is altered to read:
1. Each accused is sentenced to N$1000 (one thousand) fine in default of payment three months imprisonment.
2. Sentence antedated to 30 November 2015.
