Michael Madokufamba, 45, got caught in the crossfire when he tried to separate Nyan'ara from another conductor Peter Mutambiranwa. The two conductors were exchanging blows while bemused travellers looked on.
Nyan'ara sank his teeth into Madokufamba's ear and tore off a chunk.
For the state Ausa Sayid told the court that on November 18 at an unidentified bus stop, but along the Gweru-Zvishavane highway Nyan'ara had a misunderstanding with a Inter Africa Bus Company conductor over passengers who were at the bus stop.
The court heard that things got out of hand between the two conductors and they started fighting. Sayid said the complainant while trying to stop the two from fighting got his left ear bitten off by Nyan'ara who could not control his anger.
The court heard that the complainant was taken to hospital and had the ear sewn up. A report was then made to the police resulting in Nyan'ara's arrest. - Chronicle
