A 24-YEAR-OLD man from Zvishavane has been fined $100 after he assaulted a fellow tenant who continued to knock on the toilet door as he relieved himself. Isaya Shoko of Highlands got annoyed when fellow tenant, Ms Beatrice Maizere, kept knocking on the toilet door while he was inside. As soon as he got out of the toilet, he went berserk and assaulted Ms Maizere with bare hands and sjambok.
Shoko yesterday appeared before Zvishavane magistrate Mr Archie Wochiunga facing two counts of assault and malicious damage of property. He pleaded guilty to both counts. Prosecutor Mr Amos Ncube told the court that on October 15 2017, Ms Maizere arrived home and went straight to knock on the toilet door.
She found the door locked with Shoko inside relieving himself, the court heard. After about 20 minutes, Ms Maizere went to the toilet and found Shoko still using the toilet.
