A HARARE man sensationally claims he sometimes gets possessed by an evil spirit that leads him into abusing his wife.
This was revealed in court yesterday where Christian Chatamborare accused her husband, Archifold Murodza, of assaulting her, whenever he was drunk.
Chitamborare was seeking a protection order against Murodza.
In her submissions, Chitamborare claimed her husband once attempted to burn their house down.
“I don’t know what l have done wrong to deserve all his treatment, he is abusive towards me for no reason.
“l am now living in fear that he might end my life since he once attempted to burn our house down by opening a gas tank,” she said.
Responding to the allegations, Murodza claimed he was also a victim of some evil spirits.
“l think there is a spirit that possesses me and I seriously need help,” said Murodza.
Magistrate Tamara Chibindi granted the protection order.
