Two men were arrested for allegedly attacking a reveller with knives and a machete at a bar in Hatcliffe after a misunderstanding.

Tawanda Katiku, 28, and Fixon Mapurisa, 30, were not asked to plead when they appeared before Harare magistrate Gideon Ruvetsa charged with attempted murder.

Prosecuting, Linda Gadzikwa, told the court that the State is opposing the two to be granted bail arguing that they were of no fixed abode.

She also said the complainant sustained deep cuts all over his body and the two accused persons might face a different charge.

They were remanded in custody to November 22 and advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

The State alleges that on November 7, around 1pm at Jababvu Bar in Hatcliffe, the pair had a misunderstanding with the complainant.

It was reported that they started attacking the complainant using a knives and machete.

The complainant sustained deep cuts on his body and is currently admitted at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.
