A 26-year-old Zimbabwean man will perform unpaid work at a local court after he was found guilty for allegedly assaulting his wife for the reason that she did not wear panties.
Terrence Watyoka pleaded guilty to physical charges after assaulting his wife with a hammer.
According to The Herlard, Magistrate Mr Kudzai Zihove on Monday sentenced him to three months in prison before suspending three months on condition of good behaviour.
He suspended the remaining 10 months on condition that Watyoka completes 350 hours of community service.
Prosecutor Mrs Mudozori told the court that on January 16 Wenyika arrived home at around midday and saw his wife Monica Chipwanya (18) cleaning the passage while putting on a mini skirt.
This, he said, infuriated Wenyika who started assaulting Chipwanya with a claw hummer handle several times all over the body.
Mrs Mudozori said that during the scuffle, Wenyika discovered that Chipwanya was not wearing an undergarment.
Chipwanya managed to escape and reported the matter to the police leading to Wenyika’s arrest.
