TWO Victoria Falls teenagers allegedly pummelled a 38-year-old man after he reportedly found them while coming from having bedding his wife.
Nelson Moyo (18) and Clifford Makamba (17) of Sizinda village pleaded guilty to assault when they appeared before Victoria Falls resident magistrate Sharon Rosemani yesterday.
According to prosecutors, on October 3 at around 7pm, Evans Ngwenya (38) received a call from his wife Sheila Ngwenya (33) who said she needed money for food.
He immediately left Victoria Falls for Sizinda where his family stayed, but as he dropped off at the bus stop at 9pm, he saw Moyo and Makamba with his wife.
When he inquired from the teenagers what they were doing with his wife, Moyo responded by saying she was his lover as well. A fight ensued and the two hit Ngwenya with an empty beer bottle and fists.
Ngwenya managed to escape and made a report at Matetsi Police Station. He sustained lacerations on his head, cheek, mouth and forehead, which needed stiches.
Moyo told the magistrate: "We were fighting over the issue of his wife as she is also mine. My friend helped me to beat him because he was overpowering me."
Ngwenya said he attacked the two because he found them in a compromising position with his wife. Rosemani remanded the two out of custody to October 30.
