Man bashes a police officer and nearly kills him in a bloody fight. This advice was at play when a Bulawayo-based car dealer was slapped with a 42-month jail package by a Bulawayo magistrate for brutally striking a police officer with an empty beer bottle on the forehead resulting in him sustaining a deep cut. Touch not the law enforcer! Brandon Hingi (25) from Nketa 8 suburb carried out the savage and supposedly alcohol-fuelled attack on Christopher Chindiya (27) on 16 May 2021 at the Bulawayo Athletics Club popularly known as BAC which was allegedly operating in violation of Covid-19 lockdown rules. In Zimbabwe, lockdown laws prohibit nightclubs and bars from operating. Hingi is, however, going to spend 30 months in jail after 12 months of his sentence were suspended for five years on the condition of good behaviour by Bulawayo provincial magistrate Tavengwa Sangster who convicted him on his own plea of guilty to a charge of assault. In coming up with the sentence Sangster took into consideration the fact that the assault from the observation of the doctor had ‘‘very’’ serious after-effects.
“There was a danger to life in that complainant may experience intra-cranial bleeding. There is also a possibility of permanent disability in that the complainant may develop problems of secondary brain concussion such as fits,” observed Sangster.
He adds: “The possibility of bleeding in the head as well as a permanent disability must not be taken lightly. A fine or community service will not do justice in this case. This will trivialise the offence and therefore, encourage would-be offenders. The only imprisonment is suitable for such attacks on another.”
The court proved that on 16 May 2021 and at around midnight, the complainant was at Bulawayo Athletics Club popularly known as BAC in the company of his friend. As they were going out of the club, the complainant’s friend lost his phone. He then accused Hingi of having taken it and that caused a misunderstanding between the two.
Chindiya then approached the accused who was arguing with his friend over the stolen cellphone. The accused then hit the complainant once on the forehead with an empty beer bottle.
The complainant sustained a cut on the forehead and was referred to the hospital for medication. The matter was reported to the police leading to Hingi’s arrest.
In mitigation, Hingi pleaded for leniency saying his girlfriend was expecting and that when he committed the offence, he was angry that the complainant’s friend had falsely accused him of stealing his cellphone.
The year 2006 marked a turning point in my life. I was a young man, wandering and seeking my purpose, when I met the love of my life. Her smile radiated warmth and her laughter was infectious, in that moment I knew she was the one. I took a leap of faith and asked her out, and as we got to know each other, my love for her grew with each passing day. Her compassion for others, her zest for life, and her unwavering support made me realize she was the missing piece I never knew I needed. And as
