A court heard that Dube sustained serious injuries and is admitted to the United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH).

Ndlovu appeared before provincial magistrate Mr Tinashe Tashaya facing an attempted murder charge.

Mr Tashaya did not ask Ndlovu to plead and remanded her out of custody to March 27.

He said the State is waiting for a full medical report on Dube’s condition.
