IN a pure act of mischief, a woman from Sizinda in Bulawayo is allegedly forcing her father to retire "early" from sex as punishment for reportedly divorcing her mother when she was a toddler.
The jealous woman, Soneni Moyo, in a frantic bid to force her father, John Moyo, to quickly "hang" his bedroom sheets is reportedly fighting with every woman her father tries to marry or brings home.
The man, who had apparently suffered home and away "sex" defeats at the hands of his defiant daughter last week approached a Bulawayo court seeking help on how to decisively deal with her.
He said he was still "young" to say no to sex at the instigation of her daughter. He also implored the court to help him stop the misery his daughter was inflicting on him by forcing him to allegedly stop having sex as punishment for separating with her mother when she was three years old.
"I am the father of Soneni Moyo who has gone violent and is always harassing me. She does not want or allow me to marry or live with any other woman. She said I should stop making love or date any woman as punishment for divorcing her mother. Whenever I get married she becomes violent, harasses me and my wife and destroys household property. She once did that to a woman I had married until she gave up and left me.
"She does not respect me as her father and to make matters worse I am staying with my mother who is visually impaired and when I go to work she does not give her food. She is always leaving her alone while going to drink beer with her friends. I am sick and tired of her behaviour. I want this court to help me," tearfully claimed John.
In a hard-hitting response Soneni disputed her father's claims saying he was lying before a court of law.
"He is lying. My mother separated with him when I was three years old. I never had any problems with his wives or girlfriends as he is claiming. He is lying before this court of law," she said.
However, at the end of the court session John could not hide his joy when presiding magistrate Marylene Mtshina ordered Soneni not to verbally, physically harass her father and not to interfere with his marital life.
