    GWERU – A 46 year old Gweru man was given a $100 fine or three months in prison for shouting out an insulting vernacular word against a Police officer.
    David Dhliwayo of National Railways Compound in Gweru shouted out the word 'musatanyoko' at Elvis Dhlamini, a Police officer whom he accused of having previously arrested him.
    The word musatanyoko is generally thought to mean ass-hole, the court heard.
    It is the State case that on November 15, 2016 at around 5pm the accused approached the complainant who was talking to Emily Moyo at Treetop Business Center.
    He picked up a fight with Dhamini accusing him of previously arresting him for domestic violence and causing him to pay maintenance.
    It is then that Dhliwayo used the word to insult the complainant. He threatened to stab the complainant with a knife which was in his pocket.
    A passerby refrained the accused from assaulting the complainant.
    Dhilwayo was found guilty of shouting out a provocative word to the complainant.
    He was slapped with a fine of $100 after the prosecutor produced evidence of previous conviction against the accused who although he claimed was a first offender was convicted of domestic violence before.
