A CITY man claims his wife has been assaulting him for not satisfying her in bed.
The matter came to light at Harare Civil Court where Tinotenda Mudevairi was applying for a protection order against Moline Moyo.
“She is my wife but she assaults me saying that I am advanced in age and no longer satisfy her.
“I am suspecting that she has some affairs with other lovers as she sometimes doesn’t sleep at our home and lies that she would be at her sister’s place.
“We are no longer sleeping in the same bed, whenever I try to touch her she assaults me saying I am not her type,” she said.
“I am tired of living like this or else she should leave because I am not enjoying my matrimonial rights.
“When we got married she knew that I was 20 years older than her and I think that she only wanted my money.”
Moyo did not deny the allegations.
“I assaulted him because he forces me to have sex with him yet he couldn’t satisfy me.
“I tried to engage his relatives over his behaviour, but they told me that when I got married to him he was old enough to be my father.
“I opted out from our bedroom as I also have a right to do so,” she said.
Presiding Magistrate Noah Gwatidzo granted the protection order in Mudevairi’s favour.
Moyo was ordered not to assault Mudevairi.
