A court heard that Kingdom Sibanda who is based in Gwanda where he does his mining activities came home unexpectedly and was shocked when he found the gate locked and a community member told him that his wife Siduduzile Tichabaiwa was at a night spot. He dashed there and was shocked to find her dancing, the court heard.
Kingdom took her home and quizzed her about why she was at the watering hole. Siduduzile fumed and in a fit of rage landed blows on him and severely hit him with a mug injuring his eye.
