A family dispute turned violent in Glen View, when a man allegedly stabbed his aunt during an argument over a deceased estate.
Ingra Moyo claimed that her nephew, Rodney Chigariro, attacked her with a knife after she refused to give up her in-laws’ house.
According to Moyo, Chigariro followed her to her bedroom and stabbed her with the knife, causing her to call for help from her sister. She also claimed that Chigariro threatened to kill her and beat up her sister.
However, Chigariro denied the accusations and claimed that he accidentally hurt Moyo’s sister while they were fighting over the knife. He also suggested that Moyo should return to her home village or where her relatives are.
Magistrate Sharon Mashavira granted a protection order to Moyo and urged the family to settle their disputes peacefully. She warned that resorting to violence could lead to tragic consequences and recommended that they seek legal assistance to resolve the estate dispute.
The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of resolving family conflicts through peaceful means, and the dangers of resorting to violence in such situations.
