A man from Zhombe fractured his mother’s arm after he had beaten her for disturbing his pot of okra which he was preparing.
Gorbeth Moyo (21) appeared before Kwekwe Magistrate Samukeliso Gumbo facing charges of assault.
Moyo pleaded guilty to assaulting his mother leaving her with a fractured bone on her right hand over the issue of okra.
“Your Honor my mother usually cook vegetables and l don’t like them I prefer milk or okra ,” said Moyo.
It is alleged that on 26 September 2020 Vetimo Mukomberi who is the complainant touched Moyo’s pots where he was making his okra which did not sit well with the accused who started beating his own mother using a wooden stick on her right hand.
Mukomberi was rushed to the hospital where a fractured bone was detected which led to the arrest of the accused.
The matter was postponed to 28 September since the court is still waiting for the medical report from the doctor.
