You can joke about anything else, but not my mother's private parts. A Plumtree man was stabbed on the head with an okapi knife by his friend whom he had decided to insult by referring to his mother's private parts.
The two friends Oscar Mpofu (28) and Mandla Nkomo (34) were at a neighbour's homestead having a casual chat when a misunderstand ensued. Mpofu is reported to have accused Nkomo of being a 'Mr Know It All', who never wanted to consider other people's views. Nkomo was offended by his friend's sentiments and hit back by insulting Mpofu by referring to his mother telling him that he should respect him.
Mpofu never took the insults lightly as he became furious and pounced on Nkomo and a fist fight ensued immediately. Nkomo tried to apologise saying what he said was just a joke, but the fuming Mpofu would not swallow such jokes arguing that his friend had crossed the line. Mpofu is reported to have told his friend that they could joke about anything, but not his mother because by so doing it made him suspect that the two were having an affair behind his back.
Mpofu ran to his house and returned armed with an okapi knife which he used to stab his friend on the head. Realising that his life was in danger, Nkomo fled from the scene and rushed to report the matter to police. He was ferried to hospital and a medical examination was produced in court as exhibit.
Mpofu was hauled before magistrate Mr Livard Phillimon facing assault charges. he pleaded guilty to the charges saying his friend had provoked him and he was remanded in custody.
