Police officer fined for beating wife with electric cable following dispute over cellphone

Clearance Lunga (39) of Unit N in Seke, Chitungwiza and based at Police Protection Unit Escorts at Morris Depot was fined $200 on his own plea of guilt when he appeared before Chitungwiza Magistrate Mrs Yeukai Chigodora for assaulting his wife Sekai Madziyanheyo (34) following a dispute over her cellphone.

The court heard that Lunga arrived home from work around midnight last week and found his wife asleep. He asked her to hand him his shirt since he wanted to go to the Heroes Acre. While Madziyanheyo was looking for the shirt, Lunga took her cellphone and started scrolling it before he took an electric cable and assaulted his wife several times resulting in bruises.

Two days later, Madziyanheyo found a pair of female underwear in Lunga’s car as they were driving to town. She was punched by Lunga after she demanded to know their owner. Madziyanheyo suffered a swollen forehead and was referred to hospital. She reported the matter to the police resulting in Lunga’s arrest.
