The magistrate convicted and sentenced him to three months, which were wholly suspended for five years on condition of good behaviour. On being asked why he assaulted the complainant, Musaka said, “He insulted me and my mother and I got very angry.”
The court heard that on March 23 this year, Mudenda of Govera compound in Binga, was drinking beer at a neighbour’s home. He had a quarrel with Musaka, which later degenerated into insults. This led Musaka to assault Mudenda twice on the head. A report made to the police led to Musaka’s arrest.
