A woman has disciplined her husband for disrupting her date with her boyfriend in Umzingwane District
It was gathered that Tafadzwa Moyo from Umzingwane District, brutally assaulted her husband Hloniphani Msipa after he prevented her from visiting her boyfriend.
The matter only came to light after Msipa approached Esigodini Magistrate Court seeking a protection order against his wife. Msipa told the court that he was living a hellish life at the hands of his wife as she is aggressive and rules their relationship with an iron fist.
Msipa revealed that Moyo brutally attacked him when he tried to stop her from visiting her boyfriend. He added that not only does Moyo physically and verbally abuse him but she also destroys their matrimonial property every time they have an altercation.
“I declare that my wife Tafadzwa Moyo is destroying our matrimonial property and she recently burnt down our homestead. I need the court to strongly warn her against her conduct. She has since gone back to her parents’ homestead and I have done the same due to the fact that we both no longer have a place to call home,” complained Msipa.
He also revealed that he once sought help from the police but they were not able to assist him.
“I engaged the police over the issue about my wife who is not taking any action to account for the damage she caused. Instead of apologizing she is now prohibiting me from visiting our homestead because I am willing to do the repairs. I can’t imagine that I am now homeless yet I used to own my own homestead.”
He appealed to the magistrate to grant him a protection order against his wife as he was now living in fear.
“I am living in fear and my efforts to check out on the livestock which we left behind is being hindered by my wife as she is threatening me with unspecified action through a string of text messages. All I want now is a protection order against her so that I live in peace,” begged Msipa.
Moyo did not refute any of the allegations, as a result, Magistrate Nomagugu Sibanda who was presiding over the case granted the order stopping her from beating or threatening her husband as well as not to prevent him from going to their homestead.
