Love thy neighbour and keep away from her husband!
Sihle Dlamini (39) would not allow her neighbour to abuse the call to love thy neighbour and she axed Mavis Maseko (43) on the forehead twice, once on the shoulder and twice on the left leg for allegedly snatching her husband.
The gruesome assault happened last Thursday around 4pm at Dromoland farm in Inyathi.
Dlamini caused a scene at a communal borehole accusing Maseko of having enticed her husband to bed her.
Her fury came out when she told people that because of Maseko, her husband had not slept with her since 2010. An argument then erupted leading to Dlamini and Maseko fighting.
Seeing that she was losing the fight, Dlamini axed Maseko. Maseko was rushed to Inyathi district hospital where she is still admitted.
A report was made at Inyathi police station leading to Dlamini’s arrest.
Appearing before magistrate on circuit at Inyathi Stephen Ndlovu facing an assault charge, Dlamini pleaded not guilty.
“Your worship I am hurt and deny the assault charge because Mavis snatched my husband in 2010 since then he stopped sleeping with me.
“One of my neighbours told me that Mavis has been seeing my husband for five years now behind my back,” she said.
Ndlovu remanded her in custody to 7 January 2016 for routine remand.
