A WOMAN who tried to crush her husband’s genitals with a stone is lucky to have escaped jail after her husband pleaded with the court to release her.
Victoria Falls magistrate Sharon Rosemani sentenced Samantha Dube, 25, of Chinotimba Township to perform 140 hours of community service.
Dube attacked her husband Dennis Mazarira, 38, who teaches at AD Junior Private School in the resort town, accusing him of cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend.
Prosecuting Takunda Ndovorwi told the court that Dube and Mazarira were drinking beer with the complainant’s elder brother at the couple’s matrimonial home.
“On July 2 at around 11PM while at their house in Chinotimba, the accused struck her husband with an electrical iron twice on the head before hitting him with a stone on his private parts,” said Ndovorwi.
The matter was immediately REPORTED to the police leading to Dube’s arrest while Mazarira was referred to hospital.
A medical REPORT that was produced in court showed that Mazarira sustained swollen genitals and a cut on the head.
The name of the woman Mazarira allegedly cheated on his wife with was not given in court.
