Muchaneta Mhunga dragged Martin Makombe to the Harare Civil Court citing physical and verbal abuse.

“Martin is still the father of my children but I don’t want him to visit my house.

“He has been coming to insult me calling me a prostitute.

“When I told him I was taking him to court, he came to my house and burnt all my children’s clothes and this pushed me to apply for a protection order.”

Martin was opposed to the issue of Muchaneta being granted the protection order.

“When I came back from work, she had already moved out with all the goods.

“When I visit her premises I would be visiting my children and I have never insulted her even when I see her with her boyfriend.

“I am actually the victim because she has been telling her boyfriend to come and harass me at my work place.”

He added:

“She also came to my house and took some of my new goods.”

Presiding magistrate Nyasha Marufu granted the protection order. H-Metro
