IMBIBERS were treated to a free drama when a 49-year-old from Nguboyenja suburb confronted his niece at a bar and pummelled her with fists all over the body as punishment for frequenting a bar.
The fuming Melusi Moyo (49) did not accept it when he heard that his niece Nosizi Sibanda (22) was at a bar taking wise waters.
A family source said that he left in a huff to a bar and upon getting there he shouted obscenities at her hapless niece.
“His niece was slightly tipsy. She retaliated with furious shouts, sparking a dramatic incident which resulted in her uncle hitting her with fists and she fell on the ground,” said the source who witnessed the dramatic incident.
He did not stop as he continued kicking her until she started bleeding.
After escaping from the scene Sibanda went and reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of her uncle.
Moyo was dragged to court and appeared before magistrate Amanda Moyo.
He pleaded guilty and attempts by his niece to withdraw the case before he was sentenced were in vain when the magistrate fined him $2 400 which he is supposed to pay before 6 November 2020 or spend two months in jail.
Sibanda tried to save her uncle saying they sat down as a family and agreed that she should forgive him.-B-Metro
