MAN STABS COUSIN ON FOREHEAD IN FIGHT OVER BUS FARE
A 22-YEAR-OLD Bulawayo man has appeared in court for allegedly stabbing his cousin in a dispute over money.
Dumisani Ngwenya from Mpopoma suburb allegedly stabbed Mr Bhekinhlanhla Ngwenya twice with a kitchen knife in a fight over bus fare.
Mr Ngwenya was given the bus fare to go to Plumtree by Dumisani’s mother and this did not go down well with the accused who resorted to attacking his cousin over the money.
The amount of money was not stated in court.
Dumisani pleaded guilty to assault charges before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Lungile Ncube last Thursday.
The magistrate remanded him in custody to Thursday as it awaits a medical report on Mr Ngwenya’s condition.
Prosecuting, Ms Margret Takawira said Dumisani stabbed his cousin on his forehead and ankle with a kitchen knife, following a misunderstanding over money last Tuesday.
