Sachikonye was found guilty of contravening Section 3 (1) (a) as read with Section (4) (1) of the Domestic Violence Act, Chapter 5:16 (Physical abuse) when he appeared before Mutare magistrate, Perseverance Makhala.

Makhala ordered him to pay an $8 000 fine or spend 20 days in prison.

Sachikonye assaulted Mudimu with fists on the face several times, accusing her of being a cheat.
