In a sad development, a Gwanda man landed in the hospital after his friend viciously attacked him following a misunderstanding over a payment. It is alleged that Silent Mashakure was hit with a brick and stabbed 5 times on the head by the accused.

Fasen Mabika (26) of Spitzkop North Suburb, was not asked to plead when he appeared before Gwanda magistrate, Mr. Ndumiso Khumalo. Mabika is facing an attempted murder charge for viciously attacking his friend resulting in him being hospitalized.

Mabika hit Mashakure with a brick and stabbed him 5 times.

“On 26 June Mabika and Mashakure were gambling with others near Red Cross Business Centre when Mabika won a bet. He collected his dues from his other peers while Mashakure refused to pay. Mabika demanded his money from Mashakure who refused to give him resulting in a misunderstanding,” he said.
