Jilted hooker bites chunk off man’s ear

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Fair­ness Moy­ana

A PROS­TI­TUTE who went hay­wire when a man turned down her sex­ual ad­vances and bit off a chunk of his ear, has been sen­tenced to two years in pri­son.

Beauty Zhou (23) of Mpumalanga Town­ship in Hwange but lodg­ing in Binga, could not be­lieve Mr Bee Mukonka (33) was not in­ter­ested in hav­ing sex with her.

Zhou, who is known for woo­ing clients by sug­ges­tively ca­ress­ing their man­hood at a beer gar­den in Binga, grabbed Mr Mukonka’s man­hood but he brushed her aside, lead­ing to a stand­off.

Yes­ter­day, she pleaded not guilty to as­sault be­fore Binga res­i­dent mag­is­trate Mrs Ae­lene Mu­na­mati but was con­victed due to over­whelm­ing ev­i­dence.

Mrs Mu­na­mati sen­tenced her to 24 months in pri­son of which 18 months were sus­pended leav­ing Zhou to serve an ef­fec­tive six months in jail.

Hand­ing down sen­tence, Mrs Mu­na­mati chided Zhou for the un­couth method she used to at­tract clients.

She said men in Binga were now afraid of the hooker.

Zhou said she acted in self-de­fence after Mr Mukonka at­tacked her over an undis­closed is­sue.

“Your Wor­ship I’m a com­mer­cial sex worker and came to Binga to look for money.

“On the day in ques­tion we had a mis­un­der­stand­ing with the com­plainant lead­ing to a fight. It is then that I bit his ear as I was try­ing to de­fend my­self,” said Zhou. State wit­nesses dis­missed her claims. They said Zhou was in the habit of ca­ress­ing her po­ten­tial clients’ pri­vate parts.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Mr Bruce Maphosa said on Au­gust 13, 2016, Mr Mukonka en­tered Kula Beer gar­den in Binga where he saw Zhou sit­ting close to the en­trance. Sud­denly she grabbed his pri­vate parts and started play­ing with them.

Confused by the sud­den turn of events, Mr Mukonka bent down to pro­tect his man­hood and asked Zhou what she was do­ing.

Stung by the re­buff, Mr Maphosa said, Zhou threw a tantrum and at­tacked Mr Mukonka.

“She re­sponded by bit­ing his ear. She ripped off a chunk of the ear as other pa­trons tried in vain to re­strain her.

“Mukonka lost most of his ear as a re­sult of the as­sault and was re­ferred to Binga Dis­trict Hospi­tal for treat­ment.

“A re­port was made to the po­lice lead­ing to her ar­rest,” said the pros­e­cu­tor.
