MWENEZI - A 21-year-old woman caught her hubby hugging his girlfriend, got so angry that she poured urine on him but he also got so upset that he assaulted her severely, the Mwenezi Magistrate Court recently heard.
Desire Shumba (28) of Munyamani village under Chief Maranda was convicted of domestic violence on his own plea of guilty.
Magistrate Honest Musiiwa sentenced him to 20 days behind bars or alternatively pay US$50 fine in addition to two months sentence that was conditionally suspended for five years.
Asked by the magistrate why he assaulted his wife, Shumba said he could not control his anger after his wife threw the stinking human liquid waste at him.
"Ndakamurova ndatsamwa nokudakokuti akandidira bucket rose ranga riri mumba rine weti yake. Ndizvo chete zvakanyanyakunditsamwisa," Shumba told the court.
The State case, as argued by the prosecutor Angelinah Makonya, was that on August 29, 2017 at around 20:00 hrs, Shumba had a misunderstanding with his wife, Beauty Senga after she found him hugging his girlfriend.
The court heard that later on, Shumba went to sleep in the bedroom and found his wife playing music on her cell phone. He ordered her to stop playing the music but Senga did not comply and this resulted in an altercation between the couple.
Shumba assaulted Senga with fists all over her body several times and a police report was later made leading to his arrest.
