A man from Bulawayo is living in fear of his son who assaults him with empty bottles when he fails to give him money.
It is understood that Jefurayi Mutengwa occasionally suffers from injuries inflicted on him by his son, Maxwell Mutengwa.
Jefurayi and close relatives have tried to reprimand Maxwell but their efforts have been in vain.
Now Jefurayi is afraid his son will kill him because when he gets violent, he reportedly threatens to kill his father.
In order to protect himself Jefurayi decided to seek justice from the courts.
“I am applying for a protection order against my son Maxwell Mutengwa. He comes home drunk and starts insulting me using vulgar language. He assaults me using empty bottles for not giving him money. He also threatens to kill me so I am now living in fear. May the court grant me a protection order so that he stops insulting, assaulting and threatening me,” said Jefurayi.
Magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube granted the order.
