A man from Chinyamukwakwa village in Chipinge was brutally attacked by a South African-based Zimbabwean man who had returned home to check on his family in the wake of the floods.
Maxwell Masonga (32) brutally assaulted Josiah Altyson Sithole (age not given) to a pulp, accusing him of bedding his wife.
This was revealed on Wednesday at the initial appearance of Masonga before Chipinge magistrate, Joshua Nembaware.
Masonga is facing assault charges and was remanded in custody to April 8 as the State awaits Sithole’s medical report.
Masonga allegedly struck Sithole with a brick on the head and face several times. He was rushed to St Peter’s Hospital and later transferred to Chiredzi District Hospital.
