A woman yesterday made stunning revelations in court when she said the couple has been sleeping in separate bedrooms for the past four years.
Lona Mushara said her husband Linas Mugariwa was not buying food for their children. This emerged at the Harare Civil Court where Mugariwa was seeking a protection order against Mushara whom he said was in the habit of verbally and physically abusing him.
“She is in the habit of physically and verbally abusing me with obscene words in the presence of our children,” he said.
Mugariwa said he was living a horrible life in his own house since Mushara was in the habit of denying him access to food despite the fact that he is the bread winner.
“I am trying my best to take care of my family, but she doesn’t appreciate it at all,” he said.
Mushara denied the allegations saying they are always fighting because Mugariwa was failing to provide for the family.
Harare Civil Court magistrate Ms Barbra Masinire granted the protection order which barred Mushara from verbally or physically abusing Mugariwa.
