A Seke Teachers College lecturer has appeared before Harare Civil Court seeking for a protection over threats of violence.
Jonah Mawere stood before magistrate Tafadzwa Miti seeking protection order against Mistead Madanhire whom he accused of continuous insults and harassment.
“Your worship Madanhire has been sending some messages to me threatening my life.
“He accuses me of having a relationship with his wife.
“He is now visiting my workplace telling my employers that I should be dismissed from work.
“I am a lecturer at Seke Teachers College and I am his wife’s supervisor.
“I am pleading with this court to be granted a peace order. I no longer feel safe,” he said.
“I don’t want him to visit my workplace.
“He also sends me horrible texts insulting me.
“Last time he told me that I deserve to be swallowed by a big fish and to be dumped in Sodom and Gomora,” said Mawere.
In response Madanhire told the court that he was just expressing his emotions towards what was happening between Mawere and his wife.
“This man destroyed my relationship with my wife.
“I am not threatening this man; it’s only that I was just expressing my emotions.
“When I approached his employers there was a hearing about this case,” said Mawere.
Presiding magistrate Tafadzwa Miti granted the application in favour of Mawere. Madanhire was ordered not to physically or verbally assault and not to send messages to the applicant.
