#Zimbabwe Brother threatens sister’s life over Wi-Fi
A Harare man was yesterday dragged to the Harare civil court after he threatened to stab his sister for denying him access to wifi.
Tafadzwa Munezvenyu hauled Tinashe Munezvenyu before magistrate Mrs Yeukai Nzuda accusing him of physical, verbal and emotional abuse.
In her submission Tafadzwa told the court that Tinashe had threatened to kill her more than five times, threatened to stab her more than three times, he even tried to stab their mum and he slept in the police cells regarding the assaults.
Tinashe argued that Tafadzwa and his mum Eugene Munezvenyu were looking back 10 years ago, “when I had delusions and hallucinations, I am a schizophrenia patient, it is a chronic illness and am on antipsychotics for life.”
“I threatened her after she had denied me access to internet, and on the other account I was spreading marmalade on a piece of bread while I was conversing with her about the internet issue maybe she felt the position of the knife was offensive and she interpreted that I wanted to kill her but I did not want to kill her.” Said Tinashe
When Eugene Munezvenyu was asked if Tinashe had assaulted them, she told the court that his son has been harassing them, “I am not going to lie about this I am a mother ndinovharawo vharawo zvinhu vana ava vanotedzana, I had to send Tafadzwa to live with her aunt nekuti pane zvaitonetsa.”
Your worship I did spend a night in the police cells but it is not that I was guilty but it was just a form of punishment, I have never attacked them. To prove my innocence I can give you contact details of ten pastors including Pastor Tom Deuschle of Celebration Ministries international they can attest that am a good person and my boss even signed the recommendation letter stating that I have a high moral standing.
Please judge in my favor am a good person ndiri munhu kwaye, this labelling and a court order will tarnish my image am currently pursuing a master’s degree in clinical physiology and I have to have a clean criminal record because I will be dealing with mental patients.
I have apologized to them sincerely
When asked by Mrs Nzuda if they wanted to proceed with the matter since he was apologizing.
In her response Tafadzwa told the court that she wanted to proceed as she was still scared to live in the same house with Tinashe.
The presiding magistrate Yeukai Nzuda granted the protection order in favor of Tafadzwa
