Ms Tlou Dube (17), who recently relocated to Zewula village smashed a beer bottle across the face of Chief Siabuwa (52) after he criticised her dressing.
Chief Siabuwa was stitched at Siabuwa Clinic before being referred to Binga District Hospital for further treatment. Dube was walking with a friend only identified as Mbimbi when the incident occurred last Wednesday at Siabuwa Business Centre. The Matter was reported to the police.
Speaking to The Chronicle Chief Siabuwa said he was at Siabuwa Business Centre when he saw the two teenagers who were dressed in “very short dresses” and approached them to counsel them on proper dressing to preserve their values and morals. Said Chief Siabuwa:
As I spoke to them, Dube walked away, telling her friend to walk on and not listen to nonsense. I told her to go if she felt I spoke nonsense and leave the other girl to listen to what I had to say. I re-introduced myself and even produced my identification card thinking maybe she was not aware of who I was. She continued to yell at Mbimbi and returned to where we stood, picked up an empty bottle of beer from the ground and hit me right in the face.
