The court heard that on the material day, Hamza had ordered food from the on-demand courier service which Lwande was tasked with delivering.

The defendant, the court heard, arrived at the pick-up location and notified the customer. Hamza agreed to collect the order but arrived 10 minutes later.

Lwande who was irritated by Hamza’s tardiness, gave him a tongue lashing and the verbal spat quickly escalated when he allegedly struck him in the face with his phone, wounding him below the left eye.

The security detained the suspect until Muthangari cops arrived.

It was after Lwande was apprehended that the complainant was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and discharged.
