Abusive Mutare man fined $100

AN abusive Mutare man, who had turned his wife into a punching bag each time he got home drunk, has been sentenced to one month in prison for domestic violence.


Stanley Mukonza (43) was on Saturday sentenced by Mutare magistrate Lazarus Murendo who, however, gave him an option to pay $100 fine.

Prosecutor Brighton Shamuyarira told the court that the latest bashing incident occurred on April 20, leading to Mukonza’s arrest.

The court heard that on the day, Mukonza arrived home drunk and without provocation, started punching his wife, Fortunate Mutambanengwe, until she lost some teeth.
