A Harare woman was Thursday granted a protection order against her 18-year-old son who has been threatening to kill her for allegedly killing his father.
Angeline Ncube brought her 18-year-old son Nigel Matope to court where Harare Magistrate Ms Tamara Chibindi granted her protection order, according to The Herald.
Ncube told the court that her son accuses her of having killed her own husband. She said:
I no longer stay with my son who is not present today but he accuses me of killing my husband. He uses drugs like ‘mutoriro’ and assaults my other four children.
He also insults my landlord and I am now afraid that I may be asked to move out because he also harasses the other tenants.
In a different case, another Harare woman, Maria Bote, was Thursday granted a protection order against her son, Brighton Marikopo, who harasses and threatens to kill her.
Magistrate Chibindi granted the order in default to Bote and ordered Marikopo not to visit her mother’s house and to stop insulting and threatening her.
Bote told the court that she was now living in fear for her life.
She said Marikopo threatens to kill her with an axe and once attempted to set her on fire inside the house with gas.
