TWO Marondera-based police officers have been hauled before the courts after they assaulted a bar manager who owed them $10.

Donald Mudondo, 32, and Lee Motsi, 26, both of Rujeko suburb, were brought to court this week facing charges of assaulting Witness Chitupa, 31, a manager at Kasipiti bar in the same suburb.

State prosecutor, Shingirai Nyangera told Magistrate Josephine Sande that on 19 November last year the two approached Chitupa and demanded their money from him.

When Chitupa said he did not have the money the police officers started assaulting him until they were restrained by other drinkers.

Chitupa was taken to Marondera hospital where he was treated for injuries sustained.
