Man wins protection against abusive wife
24 December 2018
A Harare man has dragged his estranged wife to the Harare Civil court after a series of misunderstandings.
Obvious Gotora applied for a protection order against Martha Zakaria accusing her of disturbing his peace.
“Your worship, this woman is staying with a boyfriend at the residential stand which I bought and when I asked her to leave, she insulted and threatened me with violence.
“She abuses me because of the stand even though I do not have a problem with her staying there even though we are no longer together,” lamented Gotora.
In her response, Zakaria said it is Gotora who verbally abuses her when he comes to visit.
“He abandoned me but we are still together because whenever he comes home he buys groceries and other necessities
“He claims that I am wife to my mother’s goblin and it is the one that makes him leave me,” added Zakaria.
Presiding magistrate Noah Gwatidzo granted the protection order in Gotora’s favour.
