A HARARE man has approached the civil court seeking help to bar his former girlfriend, who he claims is nagging him.
Shailot Notsi of Tynwald is seeking a protection order against Gamuchirai Rugwe.
Notsi told the court that at one point, Rugwe threatened to kill him.
Rugwe denied the allegations.
“I broke up with Gamuchirai (Rugwe) and two months later, she came claiming that she was preg_nant with my child.
“I denied the preg_nancy because when we were still together she was on contraceptives.
“She then started to be violent and she broke my car’s windscreen, spectacles and windows to my house,” said Notsi.
He said Rugwe forced herself into staying with him but they were not using the same bedroom.
“At first I didn’t realise that she was stealing money from me as she was taking small amounts like US$100 or US$200.
“The other day she came to my workplace to harass me.
“That is the day she stole US$6 000 and then I noticed it, I reported her to the police.”
Gamuchirai denied the allegations.
“I was not trying to harm him when I was holding a screwdriver, we were just having a conversation.
“I eloped to him, so he should just accept me because I am carrying his child.
“When I broke his spectacles it was out of desperation and it was an emotional moment because he rejected me.”
Magistrate Sharon Mashavire granted the protection order in Notsi’s favour.
She advised Rugwe to approach the maintenance court if she wants child support.
