A BULAWAYO woman is reportedly giving her husband’s uncle whom they are staying with at his house a torrid time as she is allegedly in the habit of smoking dagga in the house and in his presence.
Shantel Nyoni who is also reportedly leaving her husband and their two-year-old child sleeping while going out on her secret escapades also refuses to do household work at the house in Bulawayo’s Makokoba suburb.
So stubborn and disrespectful is Nyoni that she beats up her husband’s uncle King Sibanda whenever he tries to reprimand her.
A seemingly fed up Sibanda has since approached the Bulawayo Civil Court seeking a protection order against Nyoni. He also begged the court to have Nyoni and her husband evicted from his house.
In his complaint Sibanda said Nyoni once hit him with a brick.
Surprisingly, Sibanda said Nyoni’s husband was not saying anything about his wife’s ill-mannered behaviour.
“My nephew’s wife Shantel Nyoni is always insulting me especially when she gets home drunk. She is troublesome. She likes fighting and is always pelting me with stones and in the process, she will be destroying my house’s doors and window panes. Sometimes she smokes mbanje inside the house and in my presence. She is very disrespectful and she wants me to cook for her.
“She wakes up early in the morning leaving behind her husband and their two-year-old child sleeping. Whenever she goes out, she will not come back. My nephew is not saying anything about it and that’s why I have decided to seek a protection order against her so that she might change her behaviour,” said Sibanda.
He said when Nyoni struck him with a brick he didn’t report the matter to the police hoping that she would change her behaviour.
“She once hit me with a brick. I did not report the matter to the police with the hope that she will change. She is too violent and abusive to me,” protested Sibanda.
Nyoni didn’t come to court to defend her uncouth actions leading the presiding magistrate Nomasiko Ndlovu to grant the order in favour of Sibanda. She ordered her not to verbally and physically abuse him and destroy his property.
