Ms Memory Sibanda and Ms Lisa Nyoni were rushed to Hwange Colliery Hospital after they became nauseous and dizzy after eating muffins laced with mbanje. The two were given the muffins by Terrence Kurai Machina and Tendai Terrence Mafara on Africa Day at Hwange Cricket Club.
Machina and Mafara were charged with assault after it was discovered they made the muffins and laced them with mbanje. The court heard Machina and Mafara did not tell the two women that the muffins had mbanje. The duo told the court that they intended to have fun with the two women after drugging them. The duo said they didn’t expect the two bar-ladies at Hwange Cricket Club, to be affected by the mbanje.
The two were convicted on their own plea of guilty to assault by Hwange magistrate Mrs Portia Mhlanga-Moyo. They were sentenced to 24 months in jail. Six months were suspended on condition of good behaviour within five years while the remaining 18 months were suspended on condition that Machina and Mafara perform 630 hours of community service at the Hwange Magistrates’ Courts.
