A VICTORIA Falls man has dragged his wife to the Civil Court seeking a protection order claiming she always wants sex and beats him up for saying no. Mthokozisi Mangena, 46, of Chinotimba suburb told Victoria Falls resident magistrate Sharon Rosemani yesterday that his wife Precious Moyo, age not given, had an abnormally high sex-drive.
He said Moyo constantly verbally, physically and sexually harasses him. Mangena said the woman had literally turned their matrimonial home into a living hell, and he couldn’t stand it as she demands sex anytime and turns violent if he doesn’t sleep with her.
“I’m appealing to this court to stop the respondent from abusing me. She does whatever pleases her and abuses me anyhow,” he said. “She has been harassing me for a long time and I’m no longer living in peace. Initially I thought she would stop her abusive behaviour but it has continued for a long time as she insults me, beats me up and sometimes forces me into sex.”
Added Mangena in the application for a protection order: “Sometimes I’ll be too tired to have sex and she’ll get violent and insult me saying I’m useless while threatening to leave me.”
Mangena said his wife beats him for refusing to have sex and sometimes embarrasses him in public. Moyo is a security guard. She denied abusing her husband, although she admitted they usually fight. “I’m not happy with the way my husband behaves but I’ve never abused him.
“In fact I don’t remember either beating or insulting him although we fight here and there,” Moyo said while responding to the application. The magistrate granted the protection order and ordered Moyo to desist from abusing her husband verbally, physically or sexually.
