Tfadzwa Mapako, former wife to singer Alick Macheso appeared in court facing allegations of throwing a beer bottle to another person at the Castle Biggest Braai Festival in Harare over the weekend.

Tafadzwa (33) is facing assault charges.

She was remanded to December 5 on $50 bail.

She pleaded not guilty and told the court that the complainant, Talent Munyanyi, had provoked her by caressing her.

“He continued to touch me despite me advising him that I am three months pregnant,” she said.

Prosecutorso alleged that on October 29 at around 7pm, Munyanyi was enjoying himself in the company of friends at the Castle Biggest Braai Festival.

It is alleged Mapako approached Munyanyi and his friends demanding “her chair” back. She allegedly grabbed meat from Munyanyi and company and threatened to throw it away.

A heated exchange ensued, during which Mapako allegedly picked up an empty beer bottle and struck Munyanyi once below the left eye.
