Footballer off the hook

HARARE - Former Warriors midfielder and ex-Triangle FC player Leo Kurauzvione is off the hook after his wife dropped theft and physical abuse charges against him.

Primrose Muchiriri, Kurauzvione’s wife, told the court that they had resolved the issue as a family.
Charges against the footballer arose after a report was lodged by Muchiriri that Kurauzvione stole money from her.

Kurauzvione allegedly beat up his wife, accusing her of dating his former coach.

The 31-year-old footballer allegedly took $100 from Muchiriri’s purse at her Glen Norah residence and assaulted her on a different date at Tipperary’s Night Club where she was drinking beer with friends.

Kurauzvione had denied the    allegations before Harare magistrate Arnold Maburo, who went on to release him on free bail.

Prosecutor Barbara Ndoro had told the court that an altercation between Kurauzvione and Muchiriri began on July 1 over the upkeep of their child.

Kurauzvione assaulted Muchiriri with fists and kicked her in the stomach, it had been alleged.

The court heard that the pair had another misunderstanding on July 30, before Kurauzvione went to Muchiriri’s house and stole $100.

It is alleged, Kurauzvione, who had just arrived from Triangle, went to Chinhoyi Street at around 3am and ordered Muchiriri to leave for her residence on August 11.

Ndoro told the court that Muchiriri refused and told Kurauzvione to go to Mufakose where the footballer has another wife.

Muchiriri allegedly left for Tipperary’s where she was drinking with friends and Kurauzvione became violent, forcing her to leave hurriedly in a taxi.

Ndoro said Kurauzvione shouted to the taxi driver saying, “Take that prostitute out of the taxi, she is my wife and sometime back she had an affair with my coach who fired me for that.”

It is alleged Kurauzvione physically harassed Muchiriri, while in the company of an unidentified man.
