NATIONAL FM presenter, Washington Marimira, popularly known as Bozhongora, has approached the Harare Civil Court seeking to recover money and groceries he spent on his ex-girlfriend, Nyasha Zenge, while preparing to pay lobola for her in December last year.
Additionally, Marimira requested a protection order against Zenge claiming verbal and physical abuse.
He also claimed she sent someone to kill him.
“I saw people who she sent to attack me, but when they saw me they just said ‘it’s you.’
“She should return the groceries that I bought for lobola and she should return the money that I spent hiring deco, photo shoot, dresses and catering for the function,” he said.
He asked the court to bar Zenge from visiting his workplace.
Zenge denied the allegations and claimed they were supposed to be married in December last year but this did not happen because she was ill.
She said the only acts of physical abuse were orchestrated by Maremera who accuses her of wasting his money by not following through with the wedding.
She said the threats of violence and death were all fictitious.
“The applicant has caused my arrest as he knows our legal system better than I do. He now trolls me and follows me to public places and I can’t even go anywhere,” she said.
“Regarding a breach of peace, I simply pray for a reciprocal order.”
The magistrate granted reciprocal orders for both parties to maintain peace and stay away from each other.
