A man let out his fury after he caught another man sleeping with his wife on their matrimonial bed. His anger was expressed with the closest thing he could find - a hoe handle!
The angry husband has now been arraigned before a court for assaulting his wife’s boyfriend after he caught the lovebirds in the act.
According to Zimbabwean paper, Monica Post, Norman Dambanjera of Manica Bridge last week appeared before senior Mutare magistrate, Mrs. Sekai Chiundura facing assault charges.
The state was represented in the case by Mr. Fletcher Karombe.
“On March 25 at around 11pm at Mukahanana Village, Ziwa was caught by Dambanjera sleeping with his wife in their matrimonial bedroom.
“Ziwa tried to run away, but Dambanjera caught up with him. He assaulted him,” said Mr. Karombe
Dambanjera however differed on the matter, telling the court the court that he had indeed assaulted the man, but it had been with the handle of a hoe, and not the sharp part.
“I never axed him as he alleges, but I used a hoe handle to assault him,” said Dambanjera.
