A VICTORIA Falls man received more than what he had bargained for when he was given a through hiding at a bar for talking to a a�?hookera�?.

While Zimbabweans were preparing to vote on Sunday July 29, Koris Makwasha of Mfelandawonye in Mkhosana had other plans of pleasure.

He left his wife and two children at home and went to enjoy with ladies of the night at the nearby Mukali Bottle Store.

Makwasha approached a lady unaware that she was in the company of another man, witnesses said.

The unidentified man quickly turned the heat on a drunken Makwasha and pushed him to the toilet where he started beating him up.

Coming out of the toilet, the attacker could be heard shouting at Makwasha for allegedly switching off the toilet lights, probably to make patrons believe the fight was fuelled by that.

Part of the fight happened in full view of a B-Metro crew.

a�?Why were you switching off the light when you knew I was in the toilet?a�? the man shouted while raining punches and kicks on a helpless drunken Makwasha.

The fight continued outside the bar and Makwasha was already bleeding from the mouth and left cheek where he had a deep cut.

Other patrons intervened and stopped the fight while Makwasha lay helplessly on the ground.

His wife Sibongile Mwale arrived at the bar moments after the assault and found her husband lying helplessly on the ground.

a�?He said he wanted to buy a cigarette from a nearby tuck-shop and I have been hunting for him after noticing that he didna��t return. As I speak I left minor kids alone at home to follow an old man like him,a�? said a fuming Mwale.

Mwale rushed to a nearby police base to make a report of assault after seeing that her husband had sustained a deep cut on the left cheek and face and his shirt was drenched in blood.

Police attended to the scene about 30 minutes later but Makwasha had regained consciousness and staggered away from the bar.

Nobody knew where he had gone and police advised Mwale to go back home. No arrest was made as police could not get information about the attacker.
