An Amaveni man lost nine teeth after he was assaulted by his wife brother following his wife free for all strip show at a local shopping centre on Christmas day last year.
Marcus Sanyangore was assaulted by his brother in law Shepherd Jiri after his sister Amanda Jiri stripped naked in a drunken stupor.
According to state papers on the 25th of December 2018, Shepherd assaulted Sanyangore on their way home after the accused had allegedly given Amanda some alcohol laced with unknown drugs.
The accused was convicted for assaulting Sanyangore who was his brother in law and he also beat her sister who had drunk to an extent of stripping naked at the Amaveni Shopping Centre.
“My wife stripped naked when he saw me and she started rolling around the shops which was a disgrace to me. The accused started beating my wife saying that she can’t strip in public,” said Sanyangore.
Appearing before Kwekwe Magistrate Story Rushambwa, Shepherd who failed to comply with the law was ordered not to plead.
“My brother in law was with my wife drinking beer whilst l was going to work with my friends,” he said.
“My wife stripped naked when she saw me at the shops. We left the shops going home with my brother in law accompanied by his friends,” he said.
“The accused hit me with an iron bar on the head and I lost consciousness at the same time,” said Sanyangore.
“l suffered some heavy injuries losing nine teeth,” he said.
Magistrate Rushambwa said that the only place for violent people is jail.
The case was postponed to 4 February 2018 for sentencing.
