A 55 year old Masvingo woman will today appear in court facing charges of assault defined in section 89 (1)(a) of the criminal law codification and reform act chapter 9:23.
It is the state’s case that on the 26th of May 2021 the complainant Paul Mutembwa who resides at Great Zimbabwe University compound went to the accused Tendai Maganga’s house to collect monthly rentals.
The court heard that the accused person refused to pay rent giving reasons that the complainant was no longer entitled to collect rent since the compound now belonged to Great Zimbabwe University.
An altercation arose and the accused person tore the complainant’s T-shirt before biting him 3 times on the left hand and fleeing the scene. The complainant sustained some bruises and a swollen left hand.
The Masvingo Magistrate remanded Maganga in custody to today.
