Tonderai Furamera approached the Harare Civil Court seeking a protection order against Yvonne Mazorodze citing domestic violence.

“Your worship, I am asking for a peace order against my wife Yvonne Mazorodze because she is violent. She beats me up whenever she feels like it,” he pleaded with the court.

“She attacked and left me hospitalised. On another occasion, I lost some teeth.”

“I have been soldiering to live with her for the sake of our children but the violence won’t stop.

“I want my clothes and other possessions since I moved out of the house, but she does want to give me my belongings.”

Furamera also sought an order to bar Mazorodze from visiting his workplace.

In defence, Mazorodze said she was forced to attack her husband because he was neglecting his children.

Harare Civil Court magistrate Mrs Tsitsi Miti granted the peace order. The Sunday Mail
