    Polygamous Buhera man to serve 3 years for assaulting girlfriend


    MURAMBINDA - A polygamous Buhera man who has two wives will serve 34 effective months after he was convicted of assaulting a girlfriend and another wife.
    Buhera Resident Magistrate, Dennis Mangosi handed down the sentence two weeks ago after noting that Takawira Utete (29) had two previous convictions for domestic violence and suspended sentences.
    One of the accused's wives who probably could not stomach her husband's lengthy jail term stormed out of court with tears running down her cheeks after the sentence was announced.
    It is the State case that on January 18, 2018 Utete assaulted his wife Pamela Kona at their homestead at Murambinda Growth Point because the complainant had travelled to Harare without permission.
    In the second count, involving an incident that also happened on the same day, Utete followed his girlfriend Melody Madzamba to her house after hearing that she had a boyfriend and he severely assaulted her.
    Madzamba told the court that she broke the relationship after realising that Utete had two wives and she could not become a third wife at the age of 23.
