A boundary line dispute between neighbours has spilled into court.
Philip Masimba approached Harare Civil Court seeking a peace order against his neighbour Shepherd Chikwarare whom he said insults him and uproots his crops.
“My neighbour is threatening to kill me all because of a boundary line and he told me that I will not live long.
“He uprooted my crops yet the council pegged that stand for me and it has a boundary line.
“I want to live in peace because he insults me saying that I am a dog,” he said.
Masimba wanted Chikwarare to stop coming to his premises.
“I want him to stop coming to my premises because whenever he comes he insults me in front of my children.
“I want him to stop insulting and threatening to kill me.”
In response, Chikwarare told the court that Masimba is lying to the court that he wanted to kill him over a boundary line.
“Your Worship he is lying I don’t want to kill him and he is the one who uprooted my plants.
“The local authority pegged that line for me because I am the one who applied for peace order before against him.
“He is the one who insults me and he removed that peg and you can grant him that order because he is disturbing my peace,” he said.
Presiding magistrate Tafadzwa Miti granted protection order in Masimba’s favour.
