A 21-year-old Bulawayo woman allegedly damaged property worth  $6 000 while assaulting her father’s girlfriend, accusing her of squandering the man’s money.

The woman who was looking for her father so that she could get some money to buy her daughter some birthday goodies, turned violent on his father’s mistress when she was told he was not around.
