MUTARE-A 16-year-old Mutare girl has dragged her father to court after the latter allegedly assaulted her for entertaining male friends after hours and allegedly speaking back at him.

The matter is before Mutare Magistrate Perseverance Makala. 

Trymore Sithole (39) of 818 Hobhouse 1, Mutare allegedly slapped his daughter (name withheld) after she told him to leave her male friends alone. 

Prosecutor Thom Nyatsuro told the court that Sithole allegedly found his daughter with her ‘friends’ at around 9 pm and she said that they were doing extra lessons. Sithole ordered the friends to leave and his daughter allegedly told him to leave her friends alone. 

Sithole then slapped her once of the face and choked and pushed her against the wall after she screamed for help. 

“The accused person went home around 2100 hrs and found his daughter at home in the company of some male friends who she alleged to be having extra lessons with. 

“Sithole then ordered the friends to leave his house and his daughter responded by telling him in the face to leave them alone. Mutasa got angry and assaulted his daughter once on the face with open hands,” reads part of the State outline. 

The Court also heard that the complainant tried to call for help and sustained bruises all over her body, bleeding nose and swollen face but was not medically examined.

The matter was remanded to a later date for continuation of trial.
