A 51-YEAR-OLD man has riled his elderly father by forcibly moving into his bedroom.

The father, John Charumbira, says he is prepared to kill his son to resolve their dispute.

He has applied for a protection order against his son, Lovemore Charumbira.

The elderly father said he got the shock of his life, when he returned from his rural home, to find Lovemore occupying his bedroom.

“He insults me and accuses me of practising witchcraft.

“Lovemore uses my bed and blankets and I have to sleep on the floor. When I came back from the rural areas, I found Lovemore already using my bedroom and I had to sleep on the floor,” he said.

The father told the court that he wants his son evicted since he is old enough to look after himself and his family.

He also told the court he was prepared to kill his son and go to jail if Lovemore is not evicted.

“He is old with children who finished studies at university level, but he still wants to be my dependent.

“I can’t afford to look after him,” he said.

Lovemore was in default to defend himself.

Magistrate Rutendo Machingura granted John the protection order.

However, she could not grant an eviction order since the application before the court was for a protection order.
