Man stabs woman at shebeen

BULAWAYO - A Bulawayo man will live to regret his temperament after he was convicted of stabbing a woman at a shebeen in Makokoba.

Khayemba Lunga, who appeared before magistrate Sibongile Msipa, will be sentenced today.

Prosecutor Masimba Saruwaka told the court that on March 7 this year, Elizabeth Magagula went to Lunga’s shebeen where she found the shebeen king in an argument with a man only identified as JB.

When Magagula tried to intervene, Lunga ordered her to leave and she complied.

As she strolled to her house, she heard footsteps behind her and saw an angry Lunga charging towards her and he later stabbed her under her armpit and on her back.  Lunga also stabbed her on the left finger as she tried to defend herself.

He denied the charges, saying after the quarrel he allowed Magagula and JB to go back to their homes “in peace”.

He added that he stayed at home after being restrained by his mother. - Nyasha Chingono
