Samandla Sibanda from Mutare appeared before magistrate Perseverance Makhala who, however, gave her an alternative sentence of $50 fine.
According to prosecutor Mathew Chimutunga, on January 19, 2019, Sibanda approached the complainant Yolanda Peters (20) and started accusing her of having a secret affair with her husband.
Peters told her that she was not in love with her husband, but Sibanda became angry and took a wooden stick and started assaulting her several times on her arms and the complainant sustained a swollen and painful arm.
She was not medically examined.
