Stunner wins assault case
The Magistrates Court has finally delivered a ruling in a case in which musician Stunner was accused of assaulting his wife Dyonne Tafirenyika.
The ruling was handed down on Friday after a full trial in which Stunner denied ever laying a finger on his wife.
Stunner, real name Desmond Chideme, was found not guilty of assault. He was acquitted of all charges by Harare magistrate Evelyn Mashayakure.
Magistrate Evelyn Mashayakure ruled that Dyonne Tafirenyika’s evidence to support her claim that she was assaulted by Stunner was weak to an extent that a reasonable court would not convict the musician.
The Magistrate also added that there were inconsistencies in Tafirenyika’s testimonies. She noted that the case was a result of a relationship that turned sour. She said:
It is noted that the parties’ relationship had turned sour. There was also a matter that the accused believed that his wife was cheating. It is highly encouraged that if relationships turn sour, they should be talks. There was no evidence that was led in connection to this assault and the court wonders why these people did not come to testify. There are inconsistencies in Tafirenyika’s testimonies. Clearly, the evidence of the medical affidavit does not support what the complainant told the court. There is insufficient evidence to point out that the accused could have assaulted the complainant. The court is convinced that the accused is not guilty hence he is acquitted.
Tafirenyika alleged that she was assaulted by Stunner during a domestic dispute at the Rainbow Towers hotel back in April. In response, Stunner said Dyonne was cheating on him and also encouraged those in difficult marriages to adopt the procedure of sitting down and resolving their matters without involving the courts.
At one point, Stunner broke down in tears while explaining how he missed his daughter.
The rapper failed to hold back his tears as he told the court how he was being barred from seeing or providing for their daughter Owami by his ex-wife Dyonne Tafirenyika.
