ZIMBABWE – A city woman is not at peace with her husband who assaults and accuses her of having an affair with their church pastor.
Angeline Jonera accuses Denford Sada of humiliating her in front of their children.
This came to light at the Harare civil court where Angeline was seeking a protection order against Denford.
“I can no longer tolerate Denford’s behaviour. He insults me in front of our children, relatives and neighbours with vulgar language.
“He assaults me for showing some respect to our church pastor accusing me of having an affair with him.
“Right now he stalks and escorts me everywhere I go.
Angeline added: “He turned our children against me accusing me of witch craft each time we engage in an argument.
“Each time he comes home drunk.
“He mocks and degrades me, calling me a wife of a goblin.
“My prayer to this court is to order Denford to communicate with me peacefully and respect me as his wife,” she said.
In response, Denford said: “I insult and assault her because of the attitude she reveals to me towards our church pastor.
“Angeline is my wife and l love her so much but she shows more respect for the pastor than she does to me.
“The other problem is she always invites her relatives to our matrimonial house without my consent.”
Magistrate Marehwanazvo Gofa, who presided over the matter, granted a protection order in Angeline’s favour.
