"IF your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell".
This Biblical advice should be a living philosophy for a Bulawayo man, who reportedly took a weird approach to make an appeal for love when he forcibly grabbed a woman who was enjoying lunch with her husband at a city restaurant and allegedly kissed her while repeatedly grabbing her breasts.
However, when he was asked by shocked onlookers why he committed the offence the alleged drama king Kheswa Ndlovu (33) from Nkulumane 10 claimed that it was a temptation too difficult to ignore after he was attracted by the 56-year-old woman's good looking body.
Circumstances are that on 27 August the woman (name withheld) was in the company of her husband at a city restaurant having lunch when Ndlovu reportedly arrived.
It is alleged that after sometime Ndlovu went close to the couple before he forcibly f*ndled her all over the body much to the amazement of her husband and other people who were in the restaurant.
As if that was not enough, the daring Ndlovu went on to kiss the woman telling her that she was beautiful.
He reportedly told onlookers, who were baying for his blood, that he committed the offence after he was attracted by the victim's good looking body.
It is reported that during the drama the woman misplaced her phone and when she was looking for it Ndlovu jumped on her and again f*ndled her breasts at the same time locating the phone which was tucked in her "bra".
The woman together with her husband reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of Ndlovu. For the offence Ndlovu was later arraigned before Bulawayo magistrate Tawanda Muchemwa facing charges of indecent assault.
He was, however, saved the humiliation of a trial after the woman decided to withdraw the charges before plea saying that Ndlovu had apologised.
