    Woman on attempted murder for pouring boiling water on neighbour


    ZVISHAVANE – A Zvishavane woman is facing an attempted murder charge after she poured boiling water on a neighbour.
    Gladmore Dube of Mandava Suburb escaped death by a whisker when the accused Samantha Mabwe (23) poured boiling water on her following a misunderstanding between their two children.
    The matter was heard by Resident Magistrate Archie Wochiunga last week.
    It is the State case that on August 10 last year the complainant was at her homestead when the accused came and complained that her child had been assaulted by the complainant’s. It is understood that the accused’s child was actually lying.
    After the quarrel, the complainant thought that the issue was over and decided to take a stroll through a path passing by the accused’s house. Mabwe allegedly took a pot of boiling water and poured it onto the complainant, abdomen and upper limbs. She then hit the complainant with fists and kicked her.
    The complainant regained consciousness at Zvishavane District Hospital where she was admitted.
    The accused was remanded out of custody  to February 25 for routine remand.
    Caroline Mafunga represented the State.
