ZIMBABWE – Tinashe Ngorima was allegedly assaulted by Anthny Marange who alleges that Ngorima tried to take his faeces and use them for juju.
Marnge has since appeared in court facing assault charges.
He denied the allegations before Mbare magistrate Shelly Zvenyika saying that he just questioned the motive of Ngorima’s actions.
“Your honour l did not assault him, l went behind a bush near the railway line and relieved myself, when l finished Ngorima appeared from where he was hiding and tried to scoop my faeces into a plastic bag.
“I told him to stop and he threw sand on my face and he took my faeces and ran away. He then reported to the police that l had assaulted him. Kundisungisira tsvina yangu shuwa,” he said.
Marange was remanded to January 14 for trial continuation on free bail.
Appearing for the State Ruth Madoda alleges that on January 8, along Plymouth road in Southerton Marange accused Ngorima of using juju to cause bad luck to befall him and other innocent people.
This did not go down well with Ngorima and a heated argument ensued.
Claims are that at the height of the argument Marange slapped Ngorima and punched him several times.
Ngorima did not sustain any injuries.
