Ven­dor smears fae­ces on ex-hus­band’s house

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Andile Tshuma

A JILTED ven­dor smeared hu­man waste on her ex-hus­band’s house in re­venge, a court heard yes­ter­day.

Lis­ter Moyo (35) of Emakhan­deni sub­urb in Bu­l­awayo al­legedly went to Mr Jo­ram Wabayi’s (pic­tured) house in the same sub­urb, re­lieved her­self at the door and painted it with her waste.

She ap­peared be­fore Western Com­mon­age Mag­is­trate Mr Stephen Ndhlovu fac­ing charges of breach­ing a peace or­der which was is­sued late last year bar­ring her from ha­rass­ing Mr Wabayi (58). Moyo pleaded not guilty and Mr Ndhlovu re­manded her in cus­tody to to­day.

Pros­e­cu­tor Mr Ken­neth Shava said Moyo and Mr Wabayi were once cus­tom­ar­ily mar­ried. “On Au­gust 7 last year, at this court, the ac­cused was or­dered by the court not to phys­i­cally, ver­bally or emo­tion­ally abuse the com­plainant. How­ever, on Au­gust 16 this year at Wabayi’s Emakhan­deni sub­urb res­i­dence, Moyo emo­tion­ally and ver­bally abused him,” said Mr Shava.

He said she went to the com­plainant’s res­i­dence, shouted at him de­mand­ing that he open the door for her be­fore smear­ing waste on the door.

Moyo de­nied paint­ing the door with fae­ces and claimed she had knocked off from her stall and gone straight to bed.

“He is ly­ing, I never went to his house, why would an adult like me play with fae­ces? He once threat­ened to fix me and now he is do­ing it,” she said.

Ear­lier, Moyo had bayed for Mr Wabayi’s blood at the Western Com­mon­age set down of­fice where she re­vealed that the two were still bed fel­lows. “Why do you want to come to me at night yet dur­ing the day you claim to have noth­ing to do with me? Is it be­cause I am a ven­dor? You deny me in front of these peo­ple, but you have been pay­ing my rentals since Fe­bru­ary. You amaze me,” she said.

“So when you want to sleep with me you for­get about your pro­tec­tion or­der. Where was the pro­tec­tion or­der when you took me to your fields and slept with me there?” asked Moyo draw­ing laugh­ter from on­look­ers.

She pro­duced Mr Wabayi’s clothes to prove he had been at her house re­cently. Moyo added that she was not wor­ried about her for­mer hus­band’s at­ti­tude as she was still young and on the mar­ket and would even­tu­ally move on from him.

“I’m only 35, un­like you, I still have a life ahead of me. I am still fresh as you can see and I can re­place you snap­pily,” she said draw­ing more laugh­ter.

Mr Wabayi ad­mit­ted the clothes were his but said he could have left them at her house when they sep­a­rated last year.

He rub­bished Moyo’s claims and said that she just could not ac­cept that their re­la­tion­ship was over.— @andile_t­shuma
