A 29-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested for allegedly fatally assaulting his wife’s boyfriend at Megawatt Court in Harare last week.

Nicholas Parakoka was not asked to plead to murder charges when he appeared before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa.

He was advised to apply for bail at the High Court and the matter was remanded to March 9.

Allegations are that on February 21 this year at around 12pm, Nicholas got some information to the effect that his wife Nomagugu Ndlovu was having an extra marital affair with the now deceased Brian Dzingai.

It was reported that Nicholas confronted Dzingai while he was seated in his car near Megawatt Court, corner Fourth Street and Josiah Tongogara Street before taking him to the third floor of the building.

He reportedly questioned the deceased about the alleged affair.

The State further alleges that Nicholas took Dzingai’s cell phone and car keys before assaulting him and pushing him on the balcony.

Dzingai fell to the ground, became unconscious and was ferried to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals where he later died.

On the same day, Nicholas was arrested and was found in possession of Dzingai’s car keys and cellphone.

Sebastian Mutizirwa appeared for the State.
