JWANENG: A nasty fight between Babusi Jeremiah and his estranged wife of 17 years, Alinah Jeremiah, has landed the knife-wielding husband in court.

When appearing before Magistrate Basetsana Keakantse last Thursday, Jeremiah testified that on February 25, 2015, she met her husband, who she had taken a restraining order against due to their continued misunderstandings, on the street. He then asked to speak to her, but she suggested that they go to her house to talk.

The court heard that on that day, the accused initially refused citing his fear for the police, but later agreed to accompany his wife home, where his children also stay. Upon arrival they had a conversation outside the house before the accused grabbed her, pulled out an okapi knife from his  jacket and stabbed her on the waist.
