‘Grandson destroys my property’
29 January 2018
A HARARE woman is at odds with her grandson who has developed a habit of destroying her property.
Olivia Muchongwe opened up at the Harare Civil court seeking for a protection order against Polane Muchongwe as a result of his conduct.
“Your Worship I am applying for a protection order against my grandson, who is in the habit of destroying my property whenever he gets drunk and insults me when I try to stop him.
“He destroyed my windows and doors; when he gets drunk, he comes home shouting at everyone.
“He is the reason why my tenants are moving out and those who remained are no longer paying rentals.
“That house is my only source of income, I do not know what to do anymore,” she said
In response Polane denied ever destroying the property.
“I never destroyed her property. She just brought me to court because she has issues with me.
“She no longer wants me to stay at her house,” he said
Presiding magistrate Nyasha Marufu granted the protection order in Olivia’s favour.
