A man was arrested on a charge of domestic violence after allegedly smearing feces on his sister because she entered his room without permission, police in Zimbabwe said.
Harare police said that they have arrested 53-year-old Martin Makumana, after being accused of smearing feces on his sister during a cleansing ritual in their family home.
Makumana was charged with one count of domestic violence.
Makumana admitted to assaulting his sister Cecilia, saying that she offended him by entering his room and taking his property without permission.
However, the court dismissed the charges after Cecilia told the judge that she had forgiven her brother, claiming that he is mentally unstable.
