A GWANDA woman could not hold her anger and attacked her husband after catching him pants down with a suspected small house.
The incident took place at Vhovha Mine while others were celebrating the New Year.
Patricia Ndlovu (36) allegedly attacked Memory Mangena (30) on New Year’s day at around 9pm.
The accused said she suspected that her husband was having an affair. On the fateful day, she called her husband and he allegedly lied about his whereabouts. “Spies” had seen the husband leaving their place of residence so they directed her.
Upon following her husband, she saw him with a woman from a distance and the woman was kneeling in front of him, constantly bobbing her head to her man’s manhood, she claimed.
“When I followed the path I had been directed to, I saw my husband pants down and a woman kneeling down. I proceeded towards them and when they spotted me they stopped and ran away in different directions. I ran after my husband but he outpaced me, I then followed the woman to her place of residence.
“At first she refused to talk to me but later agreed, we went behind her tent. When I asked her she called me stupid and pushed me. I retaliated by handling her by the collar and we started fighting. I pushed her to the top of her tent, and there were shovels and hoes inside the tent that cut her hand. She took a pot and tried using it, I took it away from her and hit her on the head four times,” Ndlovu narrated in court.
The accused is said to have hit the complainant four times on the head using an unknown sharp object. Mangena was ferried to Gwanda Provincial Hospital and received 15 stitches on her elbow.
Ndlovu recently appeared before magistrate Olivia Mashava-Mashaire charged with assault and was due for sentencing during the week.
