Al-Ruweh is suspected of kicking Young Africans chairman Yusuf Manji’s son, Mehbub Ally Manji, during a Dar es Salaam derby between the country’s two soccer giants at the National Stadium.
State Attorney Genes Tesha told the Kisutu Resident Magistrate’s Court under Senior Resident Magistrate Frank Moshi that investigations are ready.
The prosecutor informed the court that the case will come on May 19 for preliminary hearing. It was alleged that the accused person committed the offence on March 8, this year, when he kicked Manji’s son on different parts of his body, causing him to suffer grievous harm.
It is alleged that after the match, some people, who were at the upper floor of the stadium, including Manji and his son and the accused person, rushed to the elevator.
But the lift failed to work because it was overloaded. As a result, some people were forced to disembark.
It was at such point in time when Al-Ruweh is accused of pushing Mehbub when he was trying to offload himself from the elevator.
Manji reportedly became furious and allegedly took the matter to Central Police Station. The move had been described by sport fans as a revenge for Manji after his team lost 1-0 to their archrivals Simba in a Vodacom Premier League match.
