Hubby storms bedroom at midnight armed with an axe, threatens to axe wife over affair with policeman


A Harare woman says she is living in fear after her estranged husband threatened to kill her and their two kids with an axe.

Tracy Tasa told the court that Godfrey Katindido recently stormed into their house at midnight armed with an axe.

She said,”He was holding an axe and started shouting at me that I was having an ɑffɑir with a police officer. He said I was in l0ve with the officer and that it was better if me and the children died that night.”

Katindido did not deny the charges in court. But he told the magistrate the incident happened a long time ago.

He said,”I do not oppose her application for a protection order but she is telling lies that I recently threatened with an axe.”

The magistrate ordered Katindido to stop physically and verbally abusing his wife and two minor children.

The case highlights the fear faced by women trapped in abusive relɑtionships, even after separation. Tracy now lives in dread of another attack.
