A MBARE man is at odds with his stepson who is disturbing his peace over an estate.
Francis Chingwaru opened up at the Harare Civil court seeking for a protection order against his stepson Believe Kamawo citing physical and verbal abuse.
“He is my stepson but whenever I set rules, he assaults me.
“At some point we had a misunderstanding, he pushed me against the walls telling me that he will not vacate from my late parents’ premises.
“I want him to be evicted because I am now the only surviving son and he doesn’t have any share,” said Chingwaru.
Chingwaru wanted Kamawo to stop assaulting him.
“I don’t want to be assaulted in my parents’ premises because I am now the owner.
“I want him to respect me and to be evicted so that I will live in peace,” he said.
Kamawo disputed the allegations posed against him saying Chingwaru is the one who insults him.
“I respect him as my father, but he utters bad words saying that my died of HIV and AIDS.
“You can grant him the protection order but I never assaulted him, even our neighbours can testify.
“I don’t want to be evicted because I don’t have any place to go,” said Kamawo.
In his ruling, magistrate Noah Gwatidzo granted the protection order in Chingwaru’s favour.
