21 May 2021

A BULAWAYO man from Entumbane suburb is battling for his life in hospital after a woman stabbed him in the stomach leaving his intestines hanging out for reportedly urinating on her flower bed.

Speaking to B-Metro, Thuthukani Moyo (32) said while he was in Entumbane suburb heading home he felt hard pressed and had to answer nature’s call on Julia Ndlovu’s flowers.

“I felt hard pressed and had to urinate on Julia’s flowers. Sadly she saw me and accused me of urinating on her flowers. I apologised,” he said.

Moyo said he then continued with his journey.

“Julia followed me and caught up with me. She shouted obscenities at me and in the midst of that she fumbled into the pocket of her jacket and took out an Okapi knife. She stabbed me on the left side of the chest, once on the right side of the shoulder and once on the stomach. I tumbled to the ground and fell unconscious,” he said.

A source close to investigations said soon after the act, the blood stained Julia took to her heels, leaving the unconscious Moyo lying on the ground.

After about one hour an unknown man stumbled on him and made a report at Entumbane Police Station.

Police from Entumbane Police Station dashed to the scene and swiftly summoned an ambulance which speedily came and ferried Moyo to Mpilo Central Hospital.

Bulawayo acting police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Nomalanga Msebele confirmed the incident.

“I can confirm that we arrested a lady for attempted murder after she stabbed a man three times for allegedly urinating on her flower bed,” she said.

Asst Insp Msebele urged community members to solve their differences amicably than to act out of emotion.

Julia was arrested and appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Shepherd Munjanja facing a charge of attempted murder.

She was remanded out of custody to 31 May 2021.- B-Metro
