MUSICIAN Ashely Shashl Moyo was yesterday in court where she was a complainant in an assault case.
Shashl was reportedly assaulted by Godfrey Utsiwegota, 21, at a local club.
Utsiwegota was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Learnmore Mapiye who released him on free bail.
Utsiwegota was released on free bail because he had come to court on Wednesday but failed to appear in court because Shashl did not attend court as expected.
Allegations are that Shashl was recording at Pablo’s studio at Pablo’s Night Club around 11pm and as she left the club and walked towards her car, she was assaulted by Utsiwegota’s alleged accomplice Ovio Mgijima who is still on the run.
Utsiwegota is alleged to have joined in the assault and the two fought Shashl until she lost consciousness.
The cause of the assault will be established in trial.
Magistrate Mapiye remanded the matter to August 15.
