For the brutal attack and robbery on New Year’s Day, Ndlovu appeared before Bulawayo senior regional magistrate Mark Dzira, charged with robbery.
The court heard Ndlovu wanted the money to drink beer with his friends.
He allegedly attacked Mpofu at around 830pm and left her a screaming bloody mess as he disappeared into the darkness.
Pleading guilty, Ndlovu said he stole $179 worth of airtime recharge cards, not $196, but admitted spearing her four times and getting away with $957 cash.
Magistrate Dzira, looking amused, remanded him in custody to 23 March.
A medical report presented in court showed Mpofu was admitted at Inyathi hospital and diagnosed with a depressed skull.
The police reportedly recovered $678 and $179 worth of air time recharge cards when Ndlovu was arrested.
