A man from Bulawayo has riled his mother after he accused her of bewitching his two children.

Ruramai Ditima (37) started accusing his 38-year-old mother Chipo Ditima of black magic practices after he consulted his church prophet who told him she was the one behind their sickness.

After being told that he then ordered her to vacate the family house. As if that was not enough Ruramai also bashed his mother.

His troubled mother tried to engage a close relative to talk to him but her efforts were in vain.
She then reported Ruramai to the police where he was warned and cautioned against verbally and physically abusing her.

According to Chipo her son briefly stopped abusing her before he reverted to his old habits where he started threatening to kill her.

The fearful Chipo rushed to Western Commonage Court where she applied for a protection order.

“My name is Chipo Ditima. I’m living in fear of my son who is always accusing me of having bewitched his two children. The accusations are that his children got sick.

“Whenever we have an argument he bashes me and insults me while labelling me a witch. He also wants me to move out of the family house. I’m now living in fear as he always threatens to kill me,” lamented Chipo.

In response Ruramai admitted that he bashed his mother and insulted her.

He said the abuse started after he consulted a prophet who told him that she was the one who was bewitching his two children.

The presiding magistrate Shepherd Mnjanja granted a protection order in Chipo’s favour.
Ruramai was ordered not to physically and verbally abuse his mother and not to evict her from the family house.
