As a result, Mukwasamombe bashed her.
The court heard that the following day around 5am, the accused person went to the complainant's workplace and humiliated her before he bashed, pushing her against the wall.
According to the accused person the misunderstanding was based on the previous matters.
The complainant reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of Mukwasamombe.
The matter will be back in court on April 20 for trial continuation.
