Woman jailed for assaulting husband

A 31-YEAR-OLD Silobela woman has been jailed for two-and-half years for assaulting her husband with a burning log.

Shamiso Nkiwane of Ndlovu village under Chief Malisa appeared before Kwekwe magistrate Cheryl Tembo facing a physical abuse charge. Nkiwane was sentenced to six months in jail. She will, however, spend two-and-half years in prison due to a previous conviction for a similar offence that had been set aside on condition of good behaviour.

The State presented that on January 13 this year, Nkiwane had a fight with her husband, Constantine Mugwagwa (41) over infidelity. She took a burning log from the fire and hit him several times on the head and back until he was unconscious. He was later ferried to Silobela Hospital for treatment.
