‘Ex hubby forces me to have sex’
10 January 2018
A KUWADZANA Extension woman claims her former husband is in the habit of forcing her to have sex with him.
The matter came to light at the Harare Civil Court where Pesis Mukonoweshuro applied for a protection order against her ex-husband Mike Mutikiti.
Mukonoweshuro told the court that she separated with Mutikiti in July last year following a misunderstanding.
“Your Worship, I am applying for a protection order against my ex-husband. He is in the habit of forcing me to have sex with him and he even insults me whenever he sees me.
“I no longer have feelings for him, he even tore apart my clothes and I walked almost naked,” she said.
Mukonowehsuro said they separated after Mutikiti brought his girlfriend at home.
“I asked him why he was doing that to me and he brutally assaulted me.
“I was admitted in hospital for three months and now I have backache. It pains me a lot and whenever he assaults me, he assaults our children too.
“We used to stay in Chinhoyi together but I ran away to Kuwadzana Extension where I am staying with my sister.
“I don’t know who told him where I am staying .He comes there harassing me and I don’t want him to come,” she said.
In response, Mutikiti who was represented by a legal practitioner denied the application saying he still loves his wife.
“Your Worship, my client never forced her to have sexual intercourse, but he loves his wife.
“The respondent is only bitter because of separation and she is the one who opted to move out of their matrimonial house.,” he said
Presiding magistrate Lazini Ncube granted them a reciprocal order and ordered both parties to resolve their disputes amicably.
