In a jealous rage, a man from Bulawayo’s Njube suburb allegedly kidnapped his ex-girlfriend and her new lover before brutally assaulting them and forcing the man to drink his urine.
Munyaradzi Shara (28) was charged with kidnapping when he appeared before Bulawayo regional magistrate Mark Dzira.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge and was remanded in custody until his trial on December 14, 2022.
Shara is accused of meeting his ex-lover Sophia Ncube (21) with her new boyfriend Ntandoyenkosi Mbambo (27) and his friend Talent Sibanda (21) in the city center on November 25, 2022, around 6 p.m.
Shara approached the trio and ordered them to move towards the registrar’s offices in Bulawayo. When they got there, he asked Sibanda to wait for them from a distance while he was talking to Ncube and Mbambo.
While talking to the two parties Shara demanded Mbambo’s cellphone before he ordered them together with Sibanda to accompany him to his workplace at Herentals College where he is employed as a security guard.
Upon arrival, he is alleged to have started assaulting Sibanda with open hands and kicked him several times all over the body.
Shara then took his ex-lover and Mbambo into one of the classrooms where he assaulted Ncube with a broomstick, and chair and slaps all over the body.
He then kicked Mbambo on the face before he urinated in a plastic bottle and allegedly forced him to drink his urine.
He allegedly detained Mbambo and Ncube in the classroom in question from 7pm to 12am.
After their release the duo went and reported the matter to the police leading to Shara’s arrest. As a result of the assault Ncube suffered multiple bruises on her left thigh and a medical report will be produced in court as an exhibit.
