Hubby gets restraining order against wife

HARARE - An elderly man has told a Harare court that his step-daughter was teaming up with his wife to beat him up. 

This emerged in a case in which Person Ngoma was seeking a protection order against his wife Victoria Moyo whom he alleges physically abuses him.

Presiding magistrate Olivia Mariga granted a protection order in favour of Ngoma and advised the pair to observe peace towards each other.

Ngoma told the court that he would not proceed with the application in the presence of his step-daughter Beauty saying she caused him to lose his voice during a previous court hearing in 2010.

“Before we start with today’s proceedings I would want Beauty to leave the court room because in 2010 I lost my speech while giving testimony, because of her,” Ngoma said.

“I do not want to see her in here because she is a bad influence on her mother, my wife. I took care of her since childhood because she was my wife’s child.”

Ngoma said he was living in fear of his step-daughter whom her alleged teamed up with his wife to assault him.

“She assaults me every time she returns from Beauty’s place. I swear if she assaults me this time I am going to retaliate.

“She has even abandoned our matrimonial home to live with Beauty. I have no one to take care of me in this old age. She has disowned me, our children, great and grand children.”

Moyo denied the allegations and said Ngoma had fabricated the allegations.

“He is lying about everything he said today. We stay together and he is talkative that I just give in to his insults to maintain peace,” she said.

“At our age, we already have great-grandchildren, do you think it is really possible for us to fight.”

Well done, magistrate. Tell magistrate Muchuchuti how to analyse evidence and not to just support women. Women are abusive and yet in court pretend to be victims.nxaaaaa
