Ex-DeMbare captain drags ex-wife to court

HARARE - Leo Kurauzvione, the former Dynamos Football Club captain, was yesterday granted protection from his estranged wife who harasses him in public.

The former Warriors midfielder had claimed that his ex-wife, Primerose Muchiriri perpetrates violence whenever she sees him and humiliates him in his wife’s presence.

Kurauzvone told Harare Civil Court magistrate Gamuchirai Siwardi that Muchiriri was in the habit of causing havoc at his workplace.

He alleged she told lies to his manager, leading to his dismissal.

“She bad-mouthed me to my manager and I was booted from work,” Kurauzvione said.

“Now I am unemployed because of her. The main problem is she wants me to reconcile with her and take her back.

“Prim harasses my family members over the phone and is failing to accept that I have another wife whom I love so dearly.

“She wants me to leave my family and take her back and she insults me using vulgar words.”

Muchiriri was not present to respond to the allegations levelled against her, but had signed the return of service papers which shows that she acknowledged that she had been summoned to court.

Magistrate Siwardi granted Kurauzvione the protection order in default.

She ordered Muchiriri not to abuse Kurauzvione in any way and to observe peace towards him at all times.

Last month, the footballer was dragged to court by Muchiriri for defaulting on child support.

He  pleaded guilty to the charges when he appeared before Harare magistrate Donald Ndirowei and was ordered to pay arrears amounting to $200 by March 10, or face four months’ imprisonment.

Kurauzvione had been ordered by the Harare Civil Court to pay $40 monthly maintenance for the upkeep of his child on August 29 last year.

He did not pay the money from September 31 last year to January this year, leading to his arrest.

Tough luck Leo. Such is life.However you have learned it the hard way that love is a dangerous game. It is human and very sweet to be in love but the dark side of it is heart breaking and wealth destroying. In love you should make the right choice and always play skilfully the way you dribble a football. Take care of your kid Leo do not worry about the quarreling mother.All the best in future Leo

The bad thing is this prim girl wants maintenance but messes leo's job, Leo should now go back to the courts and ask for suspension of maintenance payment until he gets a job because his loss of job was caused by the same woman who wants 40usd from him. the problem is you get a woman you love and think she does also yet she maybe after fame, it can be your job, you star status, you brilliance at school and when that wanes her love for you also wanes and you start to have those marital problems. This ends in divorce because you were not in a covenant but a contract. At one wedding I heard a bride and her friend shout 'zvedu zvaita' after signing the marriage certificate. Suddenly she has started hiding food from he husband's mother yet her husband is her only source of food because zvake zvakaita, haachatya murume because she has a certificate of protection. So to me this money was forced into a contract not a covenant.
