A woman from Pumula South suburb is tormented and troubled because her ex-husband posts her nude images on social media and physically assaults her.
Thabeth Moyo (36) said she believed after separating with Mandla Nkolomi (39), she would lead a peaceful life, but it turned out to be wishful thinking.
The traumatised woman revealed that Nkolomi would visit her at her paternal home and would demand to be between the sheets with her, but she would refuse.
He would fume at her while telling her that he paid lobola and she was still his wife because they had not formally dissolved their eight-year marriage.
Things would generally turn nasty as he would bash her and insult her, saying she was a prostitute. Determined to inflict pain on her, Nkolomi forcibly took her phone and sent all her nude images to his phone.
He is now on a mission to soil her image as he is posting her nudes on Facebook and WhatsApp.
Moyo said when her ex-husband’s friends see her with any man, they would call Nkolomi who would then phone her, labelling her a prostitute.
Efforts to engage his parents to talk to him hit a brickwall as such she decided to engage the court of law to stop the abuse she is subjected to.
In her founding affidavit she said: “I have been married to Mandla Nkolomi for the past eight years. We separated in May this year because he was physically, verbally and psychologically abusing me. I’m now staying with my parents.
He usually comes to my parents’ place and demands to sleep with me. When I refuse he would become angry and would assault me with fists.
He took my phone and is now sending my nude pictures on WhatsApp groups and Facebook to ruin my reputation. He is also in the habit of shouting obscenities at me,” she said.
The presiding magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube granted Moyo a protection order against her ex-husband. Nkolomi was ordered not to physically, verbally and psychologically abuse Moyo.
He was also ordered to stop sending her images on WhatsApp groups and Facebook.
