The broke Alexander Munzara of Chitsiga village in Chitsungo pleaded not guilty to an assault charge before Guruve magistrate Geraldine Mutsoto who granted him free bail to November 10.

The state alleged on October 18 Munzara arrived home late and his wife Abigal Matope (42) asked for money to buy groceries but her husband ignored her since he did not have any money.

The wife then threatened to go and claim maintenance, which did not go well with Munzara who flew in rage and severely assaulted his wife with open hands while smashing her on the floor.

Soaked in blood she ran to the police station to file a police report which led to the arrest of her husband.
