Okuryangava resident, Johannes Onesmus, will be spending the next 12 months warming prison blankets after a GBH conviction last week.
He was charged with and convicted of grievous bodily harm, after stabbing Nunyango Shavuka in the chest in February 2013.
According to court reports, Shavuka said Onesmus and another friend accused him of having previously stabbed their friend.
In an attempt to defend himself, Shavuka brandished a knife which he had in his pocket.  In the ensuing scuffle, the knife was taken from him by Onesmus’ friend.
Onesmus took out his own knife and sprung out at Shavuka, stabbing him on the chest. Onesmus’ unnamed friend also tried to stab Shavuka with the knife he had taken from him, but could only manage a cut to his hand as he blocked it.
Shavuka, who was a security guard until the stabbing, said the injuries he sustained from the attack have cost him his job. According to police reports, Onesmus’ friend denied any wrong doing and was not arrested and charged.
