A Harare based violent son has been thrown behind bars for 13 months for thumping his 52-year-old mother before threatening to slice her privates.
Obert Mutekwa (30), of Kuwadzana Extension, had denied the charge of physical abuse when he appeared before Mbare magistrate Arnold Maburo but was later convicted after a full trial. The magistrate sentenced him to seven months in prison while an additional six months that had been set aside for a similar conviction were effected. The man will now languish in prison for 13 months.
State counsel Tendai Shonhayi had it that on 26 October at around 7.30am, Obert was having a misunderstanding with his sister. His mother Ever, tried to intervene and settle the matter by confronting him but he could not stomach the approach.
The State had it that before his mother could take any action, Obert quickly bashed her. It is the State's case that he further hauled obscenities at her citing that he wanted to stab her private parts.
