A WOMAN from Nketa 7 sub­urb in Bu­l­awayo al­legedly beat up her neigh­bour when she saw the woman walk­ing with her hus­band.

Por­tia Mup­fudze (37) al­legedly also took Sithokozile Chigiji (40)’s shoe and said she would take it to Tan­za­nia to be­witch her.

Mup­fudze ac­cused Chigiji of be­ing her hus­band’s girl­friend and hit her sev­eral times with a stone.

She told a court that her hus­band, Mr Con­well Mubaiwa, dis­re­spected her by hav­ing an ex­tra mar­i­tal af­fair with a woman who lives three houses away from their mat­ri­mo­nial home.

Mup­fudze pleaded guilty to as­sault be­fore Western Com­mon­age Mag­is­trate Miss Tancy Dube. She was fined $50 or 20 days in jail. Mup­fudze pleaded with the court to give her time to raise the fine.

“Your Wor­ship I only have $20 at the mo­ment may you please give me more time to pay the out­stand­ing amount,” she said. Miss Dube gave her up to Au­gust 15 to pay the fine. Prose­cut­ing, Ms Ma­gret Takawira said on Au­gust 1 at around 8:30PM, Mup­fudze spot­ted her hus­band walk­ing with Chigiji.

“Ac­cused per­son fumed when she saw her hus­band in the com­pany of an­other woman. She slapped the com­plainant and she fell. She picked a stone that she used to as­sault com­plainant,” said Ms Takawira.

She added: “Ac­cused’s hus­band re­strained her. Com­plainant fled the scene leav­ing one shoe be­hind. Ac­cused picked the shoe and chased the com­plainant who found refuge at a house
