By Talent Gondo- A Harare woman has dragged her stepson to court seeking a protection order alleging that the son is always verbally abusing her and accusing her of murdering his biological mother.
Tackler Nyambera made the revelation at the Harare Civil Court where she applied for a protection order against Thinkmore Nyambera.
Tackler told the court that Thinkmore was in the habit of insulting her whenever he visits her at her Mbare house.
“He is my stepson but he accuses me of killing his mother.
“He also claims that I bewitched his father who recently had a stroke,” said Tackler.
She said she was now living in fear after her stepson threatened to burn her alive.
“He threatened to burn me alive.
“I reported him to the police and they took him for questioning but he kept on insulting me; this is why I am seeking this relief from the court,” said Tackler.
Thinkmore disputed the allegations saying he only had an argument with his stepbrother.
“I did not insult her. I only had an argument with my stepbrother and I asked her not to intervene.
“I have never threatened to burn her alive. I only visit the house to see my father,” he told the court.
Presiding magistrate Noah Gwatidzo granted the protection order in favour of Tackler ordering the respondent not to issue threats of violence or death.
