News anchor ordered to observe peace

HARARE - Harare magistrate Olivia Mariga has granted a peace order against Star FM news anchor Ratidzo Matizanadzo who was being sued by her husband’s alleged lover, Sellina Kanengoni for reportedly stalking and verbally abusing her.

In her ruling, magistrate Mariga said evidence presented before the court by both parties proved there were encounters and therefore a probability of infringement of peace.

Matizanadzo had denied allegations of stalking and verbally abusing Kanengoni and told the court she became suspicious when she kept meeting Kanengoni in the company of her husband.

“I saw Sellina sleeping in my husband’s car and when I asked her she lied that they were business partners saying her name was Tatenda,” Matizanadzo said.

Kanengoni, who is an assistant librarian at Prince Edward High School, alleged Matizanadzo was stalking her and hired a mob to attack her.

“She hired a group of people to attack me and is in the habit of following around,” she said.

“We are just business partners but she thinks that her husband bought me the car I’m driving these days.”

Kanengoni told the court Matizanadzo was just bitter because her husband is divorcing her and was frantically trying to frame extra-marital allegations.

“I know that they are processing their divorce and she is just trying to benefit from claiming adultery damages,” she said.

“She also followed us to Ruwa at her husband’s farm and started taking pictures of us.”

The court heard Matizanadzo dragged her husband and Kanengoni to Southerton Police Station  seeking legal relief.

The husband reportedly drove off with the latter and reportedly spent the night at her place.
