A man from Ntabazinduna in Matabeleland North Province was left bleeding from the peni_s after a brutal attack on his privates by his neighbours as punishment for breaking into their house and stealing US$200.
Gracious Zuze is reportedly set to undergo surgery on his peni_s after he was attacked by three neighbours, Trinity Moyo, Nigel Moyo and Adrian Moyo.
According to Zuze’s mother, Rosina Nehara, the trio teamed up and ambushed her son on his way from the shops.
Nehara, who is now living in fear of her neighbours, recently approached the Bulawayo Civil Court seeking a peace order against them.
She said the trio was always verbally harassing her, taking advantage of her being a widow.
“I am applying for a peace order against my neighbours Trinity Moyo, Nigel Moyo, Adrian Moyo who attacked my son Gracious Zuze. This was after he stole US$200 from their house and ran away but was later arrested.
“This happened in October last year. Before he was arrested, I tried to give them a 500-watt solar panel as compensation but they refused. My uncle also suggested to them that I pay back the money in three months’ time and they again refused. They were insisting that my son should die in jail or they will make him go insane,” her founding affidavit reads in part.
She went on to narrate how her son was attacked on his groin saying:
“My son was released from jail on 28 April 2021 and when I sent him to the shops on the 1st of May 2021, they ambushed him on his way back and attacked him.
They hit him on the head and his private parts and he was injured in the process.
“Whenever he is urina_ting now, blood comes out instead of urine. I reported the matter to the police and I took him to Mpilo Hospital where he is scheduled for an operation on his private parts”.
She said the police advised her to apply for a peace order against her son’s attackers.
Nehara, who seems to have opted for an out of court settlement with her neighbours, didn’t come to court to corroborate her application, leading the matter to be struck off the roll.
