A HARARE man appeared in court Tuesday facing assault charges after he battered his wife for demanding to have intercourse in the morning even as he was “late for work”.
Darlington Kudangirana, 38, was dragged to the courts by his 25-year-old wife, Tracy Madekutsikwa.
He reportedly assaulted his five days ago after she pestered him for se_x. Court heard the incident occurred at their Glen Lorne home around 0600hrs.
Madekutsikwa asked her husband if they could have se_x before he left for work. Kudangirana refused, telling her he was late for work.
Court heard Madekutsikwa kept insisting and begged her husband, before trying to pull his pants down.
This did not go down well with Kudangirana who started assaulting Madekutsikwa with open hands before kicking her belly four times.
He then dressed up and stormed out of the house.
The unamused wife went to the police and reported the assault.
The following day around 2000hrs, court heard Kudangirana returned from work and started beating his wife for reporting the previous assault.
Madekutsikwa again filed a police report leading to her husband’s arrest.
Trial starts Thursday.
