A 63-YEAR-OLD woman has appeared before Harare Civil Court seeking a protection order against her husband who physically abused her.
Susan Makiwa appeared before Harare magistrate Gladys Moyo accusing her husband Webster Makiwa of assaulting her.
She told the court that she had lost her teeth.
“He assaulted me when he came from bar and I lost my upper teeth.
“I was not aware of the reason he was assaulting me and I could not ask him since I was in pain.
“We have been together for 43 years and I am an old woman I couldn’t fightback.
“He is chasing me away from our matrimonial home and I have nowhere to go,” said Susan.
In response, Webster said:
“Grant her the protection order and I will come to apply my own order.
“She does a lot to me which I cannot disclose here in court.
“I only had a contact with her teeth and all of the upper teeth fell down, now I am accused of assaults.
“She allows her people to unlock my house without my knowledge and I am not happy with that,” said Webster.
Presiding magistrate Gladys Moyo granted the protection order by consent.
