A trial for physical abuse opened a can of worms after Viola Nsingo alleged that her husband Sydwell Nsingo had bribed his bosses at the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) to secure employment for his girlfriend. Nsingo told Bulawayo magistrate Mr Franklin Mkhwananzi that he had bribed his bosses because he didn’t want his girlfriend to be a financial burden.
On the assault charge, Nsingo pleaded not guilty and was remanded out of custody to today.
In his defence, Nsingo said:
I didn`t assault her, I was holding her and we both fell. We are not here because of domestic violence but because of material things. I will give her what she wants and let her go. I can describe this marriage as a Sarajevo incident in history.
