The physical abuse trial involving Comic Pastor and his ex-wife Munyaradzi Mavura has opened at Epworth Magistrates’ Court.
Mavura is accusing the comedian of habitually abusing her during the course of their one-year marriage.
The pair separated almost five years ago.
In her evidence, Mavura told magistrate Jesline Madaka that she delayed pursuing the matter because she wasn’t aware of her rights.
The Comic Pastor, who pleaded not guilty, is set to be placed on his defence tomorrow (Friday).
Through his lawyers, Phyllis Mudekwa and Tafadzwa Muvhami, the Comic Pastor, will tell the court that his ex-wife is bitter about his success.
Mavura said that during their marriage, she suffered “like no man’s business”.
She said she would be beaten each time she had an argument with Noddy (Comic Pastor’s current wife), who was his girlfriend then.
“Kurohwa then became almost a normal thing. The abuse continued in different forms, but the beatings were the worst,” Mavura claimed.
