Man 'demands sex from brother's wife as debt payment'

A 25-year-old man from West Nicholson, Gwanda, Zimbabwe was allegedly caught in his brother's bedroom at night chatting to his sister-in-law and he then reportedly stabbed his elder sibling several times with a knife after being asked about his intentions.

James Gandidzanwa was yesterday arraigned before Gwanda magistrate Olivia Mashava Mashaire facing charges of assaulting his brother, Justice Ndlovu, 32.

He pleaded guilty and was remanded in custody to today for sentencing.

Prosecuting Getrude Zvidzai told the court that on January 21, at around 8PM, Gandidzanwa approached his brother's wife demanding his money.

Zvidzai said Ndlovu's wife told Gandidzanwa to wait for her husband's return as he was not around.

"The accused person then insisted on sleeping with his brother's wife as a way of recovering his money. Gandidzanwa started quarrelling with his brother's wife and that is when the complainant arrived and inquired what the noise was all about.

"This angered Ndlovu who then drew a knife and stabbed his brother several times on the back, twice on the left arm and once on the right hand. Gandidzanwa sustained injuries," Zvidzai told the court.



The magistrate ordered the State to clarify whether the injuries sustained by Ndlovu would cause permanent disability.

In his defence, Gandidzanwa said he was provoked by his brother into attacking him.

"Your Worship, I admit that I stabbed my brother several times with a knife on his back but he was the aggressor. He attacked me after learning that I'd been chatting to his wife in their bedroom, which angered him.

"My brother's wife is the one who called me into their bedroom indicating that her husband was away. What I don't agree with is that I intended to have [sex] with my sister-in-law," he said.

Gandidzanwa said he had taken the knife from his brother after disarming him.

"He grabbed me armed with a knife and an altercation ensued. I disarmed him but in the process, injured my palm. I can't remember how many times I stabbed him but it was more than four times," he said.

 He pleaded for the court's leniency in passing the sentence, saying that he had given his brother $20 for medical attention.
