A HARARE woman has accused her husband of sexually abusing her.
Ashley Musodza made the claims at the Harare Civil Court against Walklaugh Musodza.
“It’s so painful how Walklaugh treats me, I have heard stories of men abusing their spouses but, in my case, it has become worse with each passing day.
“Whenever I tell him that I don’t feel like having sex, he then forces me to have sexual intercourse. He once called me a prostitute in public,” she said.
Responding to the allegations, Walklaugh claimed he was abusing his wife after being provoked by her.
He said he suspects his wife is cheating on him.
“She doesn’t understand when I talk to her in a nice way, which prompts me to be hard on her,” he said.
Magistrate Sharon Mashavi granted the protection order in Ashley’s favour.
The magistrate also advised both parties to maintain peace and to seek counselling.
