A 29 year old man from Rujeko was last week remanded in custody facing charges of assaulting his wife.

It was not the first time for Admore Chikono to appear in court facing the same charges.

In 2010, he was fined $90 for violating the Domestic Violence Act after he assaulted his wife, Mercy Chiduku.

In 2012, Chikono was back in the courts facing the same charge and was fined $100.

In 2013, Chiduku sought and was granted a protection order against her husband as she could not stand his abuse.

Last week, Chikono was back before Magistrate Jabulani Mzinyathi facing charges of breaching the court order after assaulting his wife in April.

Prosecutor, Marvellous Muchacha, said a drunken Chikono on 15 April this year got home late at night and demanded his food.

The wife informed him to collect the food from a makeshift kitchen outside the house and this incensed Chikono who assaulted Chiduku before kicking and throwing away the pots.

Mzinyathi remanded Chikono in custody to this week when his trial is expected to start.
