ZIMBABWE – Itai Mbabvu dragged Edson Jogo the Harare civil court seeking protection order against him for assaulting and provocking her.
Itai said in court:
“I am in need of a protection order against my boyfriend.
“We were cohabiting since 2010 but recently he started assaulting and provoking me.
“Now we no longer frequently sleep in the same bed or room as lovers because of the constant fights.
“I cannot say we separated, but at the moment am staying somewhere else until I feel secured,” she said.
In response, Edson said:
“She is the one who annoys me and enflames me.
“Itai knows I am in love with my hair but she recently plucked off my dread lock.
“That is what made me create a tense atmosphere in our home,” he said.
Magistrate Marehwanazvo Gofa, who presided over the matter, granted the protection order in Itai’s favour.
