A HARARE woman has hauled her husband’s first wife before the Harare Civil Court over assault allegations.
Ashley Chinhoya, who was seeking a protection order against Chiratidzo Vennasi, told magistrate Mrs Barbra Mateko that she was assaulted by the first wife for getting more attention from their husband.
Chinhoya told the court that Vennasi calls her a prostitute who thrives on pouncing on other people’s husbands.
“Each time I meet her in public she hurls insults at me, calling me a prostitute who snatched her husband. She assaults me and threatens me with unknown action such that I am now afraid of her. She comes to my house shouting at me and assaults me, causing a scene.”
Mrs Mateko ordered Vennasi to stop physically and verbally abusing Chinhoya and to keep peace with her at all times.
