Magistrate Attacked With Hammer After Dating Married Lawyer
Barely a week after the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has announced that it has opened an investigation after a Bulawayo High Court Judge’s nude pictures circulated on social media, a Mutare magistrate was attacked with a hammer after being accused of dating a married lawyer.
It is also reported that the bitter woman has allegedly taken up the matter with the JSC, the employers of the magistrate.
It is also reported that the man at the center of the storm is a prominent Mutare lawyer.
New Zimbabwe reports that police have confirmed the incident.
According to the police, the magistrate, Tamara Chibindi, was attacked this week at her home in Murambi low-density suburb at around 13 00hrs.
The woman who attacked her, Thelmor Mudhefi (31) has since been arrested in connection with the attack and investigations are in progress.
Manicaland provincial police spokesperson Inspector Luxson Chananda confirmed Friday to the publication saying:
“Chibindi was attacked with a hammer by Mudhefi who was accusing her of having an affair with her husband. She sustained injuries on the head and hand,”
He said Mudhefi went to Chibindi`s residence and asked a domestic worker who was working in the garden to call her boss.
“As Chibindi was approaching Mudhefi she was attacked with a hammer on the head,” said Chananda.
The spokesperson said the matter was reported to the police leading to Mudhefi`s arrest.
The JSC is also investigating an alleged love affair between Bulawayo High Court judge, Justice Thompson Mabhikwa and a judge’s assistant Oratile Nare after nude pictures of the judge leaked and circulated on social media.
