Nozithelo is leading a distressed life because her ex frequents her place and shouts obscenities at her. And when he meets her in public places he calls her names. Nozithelo felt that was too heavy to bear and she applied for a protection order.
“I am applying for a protection order against my ex – husband Thembize Magutshwa. He is very abusive because since the time we separated he frequents my place and he would accuse me of having deserted him and he would assault me. At times he comes during the night and he would hurl insults at me. Whenever he meets our children he would tell them that he wants to chop me into pieces and has made that vow on countless occasions,” she said.
The presiding magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube granted Nozithelo a protection order against Thembize. He was ordered to refrain from physically and verbally abusing his ex-wife. He was also ordered not to visit Nozithelo’s place.
