A woman in Zimbabwe, has been arrested and charged to court for allegedly beating her husband to a pulp as punishment for farting in bed, iMzanzi reports.
The victim, Fikile Nyamane, claimed that while he was asleep, his wife, Nompumelelo, used her elbow to give him a blow to the face and when he asked what he did to deserve that, she told him he was disturbing her with his persistent farting.
He added that after he went back to sleep, his enraged wife sat on him and pummelled him till he almost lost consciousness.
Fikile said he fell out of bed and the fight continued, leaving him with deep scratches up to 20cm long across his chest.
He added that Mpumelelo hid in the bathroom and dispersed pepper-spray to keep him out of the room but he somehow managed to restrain his infuriated wife and called the police. The woman was arrested and charged with domestic battery.
