A ROW over sex has spilled to court with the husband demanding conjugal rights after being starved for over two months.
Kelvin Chapinduka opened up at the Harare Civil Court where his wife Loveness Magwaza was seeking a peace order against him.
Chapinduka told the court that he last had sex with his wife two months ago and was being ejected from a house they co-own in Ruwa.
“She is saying she no longer loves me and wants me gone.
“We are still staying together and I tried to have sex with her after she starved me for two months.
“This resulted in an altercation which was our first since we married, it was a mistake and I have never repeated it,” he said.
In her submissions, the applicant, Loveness Magwaza said the two were in bad space.
“Your Worship, I lost my tooth in the altercation and I can’t continue living with a violent man.
“Love no longer exists between us and I want him ejected from the house because our minor children are now afraid of his behaviour,” she said.
She said the two had agreed to share their belongings before separating.
“He was supposed to take our commuter omnibus and leave the house for me and the children but he is changing sides.
“I am willing to share all the property equally and go to have peace without him in my life,” she said.
In his ruling, magistrate Noah Gwatidzo granted the application by consent.
He ordered Chapinduka not to verbally or physically abuse Magwaza but did not order his ejectment since he is a co-owner.
