An irate Bulawayo man was recently arrested after he attacked his mother-in-law over a television.
Simamba Ndlovu (50) who stays in Nkulumane suburb was hauled before the court after he slapped and assaulted his mother-in-law Everist Makuleya (70) with a chair for failing to give him back his television set that he had lent her.
Ndlovu pleaded not guilty when he appeared for trial before Western Commonage magistrate Ulukile Ndlovu facing a physical abuse charge.
According to a close source privy to the development, on the fateful day, Ndlovu left his homestead in a huff and went to Tshabalala suburb where his mother-in-law and his other in-laws live.
He got there at around 8.45 pm and upon arrival, he did not even knock at the door, but instead pushed the door open and stormed in.
His mother-in-law was in her bedroom. He allegedly started shouting obscenities while demanding his television set which he had lent her when they had a private function.
