Landlady Assaulted By Tenants After Asking For Rent

Landlady Assaulted By Tenants After Asking For Rent

Two Victoria Ranch tenants in Masvingo, a mother and her daughter have been jailed for assaulting their landlady and refusing to pay rent.

Sekai Mangeya (39) and Privilege Mangeya (15) bashed their landlord on 29 September and then went on to refuse to pay rent or surrender keys for their rooms.

The landlady Vonile Moyo (50) was briefly detained at Masvingo Provincial Hospital after sustaining injuries.

The duo was sentenced to 10 months each in prison by magistrate Patience Madondo when they appeared before her on October 9 2021.

The two will however serve 5 months each after 5 months of the sentence were suspended on condition that the two are not going to commit the same offence before one year has elapsed.

Prosecuting, Tarisai Muvengi said the accused assaulted the complainant who stays in Mucheke D after she went to the Ranch to collect rent from her house.

It was alleged that the accused had not paid rent for several months.

When the complainant arrived at her house, she found no one at home and later noticed that they were at a nearby house.

The complainant then asked for the rent and the accused refused to give her.

She then asked for her keys to the rooms with the intention of evicting them from her house but they again refused.

Sekai allegedly pushed Moyo to the ground and assaulted her together with her daughter using open arms and clenched fists.

Moyo reported the case to the Police leading to the arrest of the two.

It's good they are in prison. How can you behave like that. If you are a lodger, it means you are a tenant who have to pay for your lodgings Kudheerera. Kuti tsem tsem kutdemuka chaiko. Some will sue you for everything you've got
