    Mutero High teacher seeks peace order against abusive wife


    NYASHA MUSAMBASI

    BUHERA - Mathew Makombe, who says he is a teacher at Mutero High School in Gutu has gone to court to seek a protection order against his abusive and violent wife.
    Makombe who comes from Dzorai Village under Chief Makumbe made the application before Murambinda Resident Magistrate Dennis Mangosi two weeks ago.
    Makombe said his wife was not only abusive to him but abused the children and Makombe wanted an order that barred Teurai Sanhokwe from visiting him.
    Sanhokwe is currently at her parents’ home at Gamanya Village under Chief Chinhamora in Domboshava. Makombe who is wedded to Sanhokwe said he is actually seeking a divorce in order to free himself from his wife.
    Mangosi however, said it was not proper for the court to bar Sanhokwe from visiting him if she wants her conjugal rights because they are still married. He however, said that Sanhokwe must not harass, insult, assault him, mistreat the children or destroy their matrimonial property because she can be arrested for that.
    The judgment was given in the absence of Sanhokwe as she did not attend the court.
    Makombe who was desperate for a protection order brought his children to court as witnesses.
