A 51-YEAR-old Harare man was left bleeding after his wife grabbed and refused to let go of his privates during a domestic dispute, a city court heard this week.

Neighbours rushed to the couple’s house to help untangle a screaming Charles Tavara has his wife Grace Sibokwane refuse to let go of his testicles.
Sibokwane escaped a custodial sentence after Tavara begged Harare magistrate Obedience Matare to free his wife saying they would settle issues out court.
“I no longer want to pursue the case. If you may kindly drop the charges, she is my wife,” he said.
Prosecuting, Linda Gadzikwa indicated that the incident occurred on December 15 this year at the couple’s home in Mabvuku.
Tavara went to a neighbour’s funeral around 9pm, only to return at around 5am the following day.
Court heard a misunderstanding arose after Tavara allegedly vomited on the bed.

It was alleged that neighbours heard Tavara’s screams and rushed to the scene to assist him.
However, Tavara told court that “she (the wife) pulled me for no apparent reason, and no one restrained her from assaulting me”.
His wife was warned and cautioned after pleading guilty to the charges.
“The accused acted unlawfully and is hereby warned to resolve disputes amicably in future,” said Matare before discharging Sibokwane.
