Mohadi goes to court, seeks protection against ex-wife

Mohadi goes to court, seeks protection against ex-wife
Published: 19 April 2019 (280 Views)
Vice President Kembo Mohadi has gone to court seeking a protection order against his ex-wife Tambudzani Muleya, accusing her of harassment and making threats of physical harm.

Mohadi, in court papers, sets out a different narrative from that reported in newspapers over a raid on his former matrimonial home in Beitbridge on March 30.

The couple were granted a divorce earlier in March after a two-year court battle.

The vice president was accused of using an axe to break down doors and threatening to kill his wife, while also seizing property, including vehicles, which his wife said she won as part of the divorce settlement.

But in a court filing at the Harare Civil Courts, Mohadi accuses his ex-wife of being the aggressor, also claiming she has been interfering with his farming activities.

"On March 30, 2019, I had to go to my former matrimonial home in the company of the police so that everything would be done peacefully and within the ambit of the law. The respondent (Muleya) had to be restrained by the police from attacking me. I proceeded to collect my property and left and since then I have never been there and will never be there," Mohadi said in his plea for protection, the second such order he has sought against her over the last year.

"… on April 1, 2019, the respondent went to my farm Lot 1 of 10 Farm, Jompembe Beitbridge Umzinganwe Estate which is a property which was awarded to me. She started giving my workers orders different from what I had given them. Meanwhile, she is dictating how business should be conducted at the farm."

Mohadi also accused Muleya of visiting his workplace in Harare, and later his residence where he now stays with his new wife, Juliet Mutavhatsindi, "to cause commotion and chaos". She was restrained by security agents manning the two places, he said.

In her opposing affidavit, Muleya challenged the authenticity of Mohadi's affidavit before the court saying the signature appended on the document does not resemble that of her former husband.

"It is a manifest forgery and the document before this honourable court is a forged document. I dispute its authenticity," Muleya said.

The matter is set to be heard on April 23, 2019.
