A 27-year-old Harare man fatally assaulted his business partner during a fight at a local club, the court heard yesterday.

Edward Vendeventer was facing murder charges when he appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Dennis Mangosi.

He was remanded in custody and advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

It is the State’s case that on the day in question, the deceased, who was in the business of selling water, met Vendeventer in a local club while drinking beer.

He then asked Vendeventer about the balance for water supplied to him.

A misunderstanding ensued and degenerated into a fight between the two.

During the fight the court heard that the accused grabbed the complainant and threw him in a professional wrestling Supplex City style and both of them fell and landed on their heads before being restrained by other revellers. It is alleged that the deceased later complained about a headache which resulted in his death.
