A man was convicted on assault charges after he attacked his wife with a claw hammer for not wearing mini skirt without pant while doing chores in the home.
Appearing before Mbare Magistrate court in Zimbabwe, the man identified as Terrence Watyoka (26), did not waste the court’s time and pleaded guilty to the assault charges.
The Magistrate sentenced him to 13 months in jail but suspended the entire sentence.
3 months were suspended on condition of good behavior while 10 months were suspended on condition that Watyoka completes 350 hours of community service.
During the hearing, the court heard that Watyoka returned home around midday and saw his wife Monica Chipwanya (18) cleaning the passage while putting on a mini skirt. This infuriated Watyoka who started assaulting her.
While in the process of assaulting her, he discovered that she was actually pant-less which infuriated him even more and he intensified the assault. Monica sustained injuries from the claw hammer which was used to assault her.
Fearing for her life, she fled from Watyoka and filed a police report against him.
