Happy Mhlanga said whenever he asks for conjugal rights, his wife Esther Sidori, directs him to their daughter’s bedroom. This emerged at the Harare Civil Court where Mhlanga was seeking a protection order against Sidori whom he said was breaching his peace.
Mhlanga claimed Sidori was in the habit of verbally abusing him each time he reprimands their daughter from wearing trousers and mini-skirts. “I am now afraid of reprimanding our daughter because she always takes her side and insults me in her presence,” said Mhlanga.
Ms Masinire granted the order in Mhlanga’s favour which barred Sidori from verbally abusing him. She ordered the two to have respect for each other and live in peace. Sidori denied all the allegations levelled against her by Mhlanga and accused him of admiring their daughter’s legs each time she wears a mini-skirt.
“Our daughter is old enough to choose her own type of clothes but he keeps on forcing her to dress the way he wants,” she said.
Sidori told Harare Civil Court magistrate Ms Babra Masinire that Mhlanga always says the spirit medium on him does not allow their daughter to wear such clothes but at times he admires her legs saying they were sexy.
“Sometimes when our daughter wears these mini-skirts he tells me that she must keep on wearing them because her legs are sexy,” said Sidori.
Ms Masinire granted the order in Mhlanga’s favour which barred Sidori from verbally abusing him. She ordered the two to have respect for each other and live in peace.
