A Chiweshe man is in trouble after he failed to control his temper and assaulted his wife over a pack of cigarettes.

The matter came to light yesterday at Concession magistrates courts where Samuel Antio (36) appeared before magistrate Joshua Nembaware facing a physical abuse charge.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and was remanded in custody to Monday for sentencing.

Prosecutor Precious Khanye told the court that on July 29, Antonio accused his wife of misplacing his pack of cigarettes and assaulted her with open hands all over the body but the wife did not file a police report.

On August 1 he repeated the same modus operandi and insulted his wife's mother with unprintable words.

The wife Shyleen Ruhukwa was pained and filed a police report which led to the arrest of Antonio.
