A 27-year-old Chinhoyi man found himself in hot soup after he bashed his aunt for serving him sadza and soup.
Lovejoy Kawisiyo of Greenspan compound, Chinhoyi was fined $5 000 as fine after he physically assaulted his aunt Chipo Maramwidze (30).
Kawisiyo pleaded guilty when he appeared before provincial magistrate Tapiwa Banda on Wednesday charged with domestic violence.
It is in the States case that on 12 March this year, at around 6:30 pm at Greenspan compound in Chinhoyi, Maramwidze prepared relish for the whole family since their grandmother who normally cooks for the family members, including Kawisiyo, was not at home.
When a drunken Kawisiyo returned home from a beer binge, he questioned his aunt as to why she put some soup on his plate.
He allegedly started assaulting his aunt with open hands several times all over her body.
As if that was not enough, an enraged Kawisiyo then picked up a piece of firewood from the heath and continued beating up Maramwidze on the back several times.
