A 36-YEAR-OLD man has been hauled to court by his sugar mummy who he was accusing of having an affair with their garden boy.
Mushonga Keith Moses Mubaiwa, 36, of No. 15 Victory Road Greendale appeared before Harare magistrate Nomsa Sabarauta facing assault charges.
Mubaiwa pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
Circumstances leading to his arrest are that on January 28 at around 7pm, Mubaiwa arrived home and started shouting at Linda Schweizer, 66, accusing her of having an affair with their garden boy.
The court heard that, Schweizer told Mubaiwa to go and sleep and they would discuss the matter the following day since he was drunk.
It is alleged that Schweizer went and packed Mubaiwa’s belongings that were in the garage and asked him to leave her house.
Mubaiwa followed Schweizer insulting her while she was in the garage packing his clothes.
In a fit of rage, Schweizer grabbed a plastic torch and hit Mubaiwa in his face.
In retaliation, Mubaiwa pushed Schweizer on the ground and she broke her left arm.
Schweizer lodged a complaint with the police leading to the arrest of Mubaiwa.
The matter was remanded to November 23 for trial continuation.
Crispen Chikafu appeared for the State.
