Chaos as stingy man sjamboks ex-wife for demanding money


Man sentenced to community service for assaulting ex-wife over child support

A 33-year-old man from Binga found himself facing charges of assault after attacking his ex-wife with a sjambok (a type of whip) when she requested financial support for their two minor children.

Witness Muleya, the accused, pleaded guilty to the charges of physical abuse during his appearance before Hwange magistrate Yolanda Kabasa Bonzo last week.

In response to Muleya’s admission of guilt, Magistrate Bonzo handed down a sentence of 350 hours of community service, to be served at Pashu Clinic starting tomorrow.

According to the prosecution led by Brenda Ndlovu, the incident occurred on December 5 when Tawo Kapoto, the victim and Muleya’s ex-wife, asked him for financial assistance to support their two children. In a fit of anger, Muleya reached for a sjambok and began whipping Kapoto, causing her injuries.

The court proceedings shed light on the disturbing incident, highlighting the importance of addressing issues related to child support and domestic violence. The assault serves as a painful reminder of the challenges faced by many single parents who struggle to secure financial support for their children’s well-being.
