A Hwange man who abused his three children has been slapped with a wholly suspended six months jail term.

The man (36) abused his children many times with a mopane switch and ate their food.

Hwange magistrate Aelene Munamati recently convicted and sentenced him to six months in jail which she wholly suspended for five years on condition of good behaviour.

The court was told the court that last year on several occasions the man abused his three children aged  14, 8 and 5 years by assaulting them with a mopane switch and eating their food.

A report was made after the children visited their grandmother and informed her about the ordeal leading to his arrest.
