A 24 year old man is facing allegations of beating up his neighbour who owes him US$1. Godfrey Tavayedza appeared at Chitungwiza magistrates’ court over accusations of beating up his neighbour, Happison Jiro who owed him US$1.

Godfrey pleaded not guilty to the charges saying that Happison was the first to attack him.

“I did not assault him but we fought. We did not fight because of the US$1 but I beat him up because I was defending myself since he was the one who assaulted me first,” said Godfrey.

The State, led by Tendai Mukariri, alleges that on June 3 at around 1pm, Godfrey went to Happison’s place of residence demanding his US$1 from him.

When Happison said he had no money, Godfrey started beating him up using his hands.

This did not go down well with Happison who then logged a complaint with the police. H Metro
