An 18 YEAR-OLD Mudzi who assaulted  his grandmother with a wooden stick was arraigned  before Mutoko magistrate  last week.

Nobert Musambanyama  was sentenced to 2 years in prison by magistrate  Rumbidzai Mhandu.

The convicted who pleaded guilty to the charge was lucky to escape jail after the magistrate  commuted  the sentence to 540 hours of community  service.

Prosecutor  Richard Mbande told the court that on 7 July Musambanyama  visted his grandmother  Joice Rusike and started scolding her for no reason.

In a fit of rage Musambanyama picked a wooden stick and assaulted Rusike all over the body.

Rusike had neighbours to thank who came to her rescue after she cried for help.

Musambanyama managed to flee when he saw neighbours coming for him.
