A GULLIVERS Night Club doorman was last week arraigned before the courts facing assault charges after he allegedly pinched and pushed a member of the Zimbabwe National Army who had tried to enter the club without paying.
Ronny Makore (29) denied the assault charges when he appeared before Mutare provincial magistrate, Mrs Lucie-Anne Mungwari.
He denied ever pinching Tapiwa Tomu (32) and claimed that he had slightly pushed him as he had insisted on entering the club without paying the $1 entrance fee.
“I only pushed him Your Worship. I never pinched him. There is no reason why I would even think of pinching him,” he insisted.
Mr Brian Goto prosecuted.
Makore was remanded out of custody to March 30 on $20 bail.
Allegations were that on March 15 and at around 4.30am, Tomu tried to enter Gullivers Night Club without paying anything.
“Makore pinched Tomu once on the left arm and told him that he would not enter the club without paying $1.
“He went on to push Tomu, thereby injuring him in the process,” said Mr Karombe.
