VICTORIA Falls: A 41-year-old man from Jambezi was lucky to escape with community service after a magistrate found him guilty of threatening to kill his mother after she reportedly sold his cow and squandered the cash.

Court heard that the elderly woman escaped and went to report the matter to the police leading to her son's arrest.

Mayibongwe Dlodlo Village B in Jambezi pleaded guilty to physical abuse after he threatened to kill his mother, Lucy Msindazi, aged 65.

Dlodlo appeared before Victoria Falls magistrate Rangarirai Gakanje who suspended two months of the sentence on conditions.

The magistrate initially sentenced Dlodlo to eight months in prison but suspended the jail term in favour of community service. Dlodlo will do 210 of community service at Jambezi Secondary School in the area.

According to prosecutor, David Tivakudze, Dlodlo had a misunderstanding with his mother whom he accused of selling his cow and spending the money.

“The complainant Lucy Msindazi had just arrived at her home when Dlodlo intercepted her at the gate.”

Prosecutors said Dlodlo armed himself with an unknown object and told his mother; “Ngifuna ukukubulala; vele ngifuna isidumbu sakho lapha (I want to kill you. I want your copse here)”.

Fearing for her life, Msindazi fled from her homestead and reported the matter to the police resulting in Dlodlo’s arrest.
