A MVUMA man went into a rage and allegedly burnt his wife’s privates after “discovering” that she was having an affair with his brother.Morgan Kombani, 37, appeared before Mvuma magistrate Vimbai Makora charged with domestic violence and theft.
Besides physically abusing wife, Moline Mwanza, Kombani is said to have killed two beasts belonging to his brother, Michael Kazomba, as punishment for sleeping with his wife.
The court heard that on March 15 this year, Kombani, upon discovering the illicit relationship, assaulted Mwanza all over the body before burning her privates with a log on fire.
On June 6, he then went to his brother`s homestead where he allegedly took two beasts and drove them to his own homestead and slaughtered them.
He was however, seen by his brother`s wife, who notified Kazomba, and the matter was reported to the police.
The cops conducted investigations and discovered two carcasses at Komboni`s mother`s homestead. The two beasts were valued at $1,200.
Appearing in court, Komboni pleaded guilty to the domestic violence charge.
He however denied stock theft, arguing that it was a family decision for him to take his brother`s beasts as compensation for sleeping with his wife.
The trial continues Friday (June 24
