There was drama at Wandiona farm in Mvurwi last week where a 21year old woman struck her husband snatcher with a brick and she collapsed.

Talent Chipungu (21) pleaded guilty to the charge before Guruve resident magistrate Shingirai Mutiro on Friday.

Chipungu was convicted and reminded to Tuesday for sentencing.

Prosecutor Carson Kundiona told the court that on October 4 Chipungu saw Melody Chigumira picking some maize in a harvested field and accused her of coming to the farm to do prostitution and lure her husband Gift Kurambira.

Chigumira denied the allegations and the convict started assulting the complainant with clenched fists and she fell down.

When she tried to stand up Chipungu picked a brick and struck her on occiput and Chigumira lost conciousness.

Chipungu was refrained from further assulting Chigumira by her husband.

The matter was reported to Mvurwi police station leading to the arrest of the convict.
