A ritual debate did not end well for two Mudzi men who were drinking together at a local bar.

The matter came to light at Mutoko magistrates courts where Godfrey Chataika (38) was dragged to court for assaulting a Kotwa hospital general hand employee Lenias Chabveka (50).

Chataika pleaded guilty to the charge before magistrate Elijah Sibanda who sentenced him to three months behind bars.

Prosecutor Richard Mbambe told the court that on November 3 the two were drinking beer at a local bar in Mudzi, Nyamuruka Business Centre when they started discussing about day to day issues.

The complainant said Nyamuruka Business Centre was not developing maybe because the owners of businesses were using rituals.
That did not auger well with the convict who picked an empty bottle and struck the hospital worker on the forehead. 
He sustained a deep cut and Chataika was arrested.
