AN elderly man revealed how he discovered that his house had been turned into a sleazy pr0stitution den by his daughter who was in the habit of bringing her different boyfriends for sleep-overs.
Hall Nkomo from Vulindlela Flats in Makokoba suburb in Bulawayo said her daughter Judy Nkomo turned his house into a brothel as she was also bringing married men from the suburb into the house when he was not there. He said his daughter started engaging in intimate relationships when she was still at school.
A devastated Hall revealed this at the Bulawayo Civil Court where he was suing his daughter and son David for disrespecting him.
“I am the complainant in this matter and the first respondent Judy Nkomo is my daughter. I am applying for a protection order against her because she is verbally and emotionally abusive towards me and this has been going on for several years. She is always threatening and insulting me.
“She is also disrespecting me by bringing her different boyfriends into my house for sleep-overs and this has caused problems with my neighbours as some of the boyfriends are married men who live in the suburb,” complained Hall.
He said he was no longer at peace because of his daughter’s coquettish behaviour.
He further said his son was also inciting Judy to disrespect him.
“The second respondent David Nkomo is my son. I am also applying for a protection order against him because he too verbally and emotionally abuses me. He constantly threatens me and disrespects me in my own house thereby causing his siblings to also disregard me. This is psychologically and emotionally affecting me and I am no longer at peace. I am therefore asking for the court’s intervention,” pleaded Hall.
In response David exonerated himself saying it was his siblings who were disrespecting their father.
“I am no longer staying at home but my siblings are the ones who are disrespecting him by talking back at him,” he said. Judy didn’t come to court to defend herself.
In her ruling presiding magistrate Nkosinomusa Ncube dismissed Hall’s application saying it falls out of the ambit of domestic violence.
“There are problems in the family which need to be ironed out but however, they do not fall within the ambit of domestic violence that a protection order should be granted. Hence your application is hereby dismissed,” ruled the magistrate.
