A 36-YEAR-OLD Mbire man is in trouble after allegedly bashing a widow who turned his love proposal down.

Hardlife Kachasu of Nyogwikwi village, Mbire appeared before Guruve magistrate Shingirai Mutiro facing an assault charge today.

He pleaded not guilty and was remanded February 27 on free bail.

Prosecutor Carson Kundiona told the court that on January 8 during the night Kachasu approached Judith Dekunye and quizzed her on why she was not accepting his love advances.

Dekunye told her that she was not interested in the suspect and that angered him.

He slapped her twice on the face and tried to pull her down on the ground.

A passer-by Nhamo Ngorima heard her shouts and came to her rescue.

The complanaint told the magistrate that Kachasu has been stalking her since 2017.

"Your woship, this man has been stalking me since 2017. He continually tells me that we are a perfect match since i am a widow and since his ex-wife jilted him," she said
