Cop up for domestic violence


KAROI — A Zimbabwe Republic Police officer Bloom Tizora was on Tuesday arraigned before the courts for allegedly bashing his estranged wife — who is also a cop — following an argument over a birth certificate.

Magistrate Robson Finsin heard the accused, who is stationed at ZRP Karoi Urban, and his wife Linah Magutakuona, had a misunderstanding leading to their separation resulting in the complainant leaving the matrimonial home.

On February 23, the court heard, the accused went to the complainant’s house seeking reconciliation, but the complainant would have none of it.

In a fit of rage, Magutakuona allegedly forced Tizora out of her house.

This angered Tizora who then kicked Magutakuona twice in the stomach and punched her several times in the face.

Magutakuona was saved from further attacks by her landlord only identified as Mudota, the court also heard.

Tizora allegedly threatened to kill Magutakuona.
The matter was initially reported to the couple’s superiors at work for mediation but was later brought to court.

Tizora was remanded to March 27 on free bail.
Webster Dimingu represented the State.
