I’m not leaving my father’s house, a man tells stepmother
A Harare woman is fighting with her step-son over a house.
The fight has since spilled to Harare Civil Court where Tren Katsenga is seeking a protection order against Joseph Chiwara whom she says is abusing her.
Tren is arguing that she came to know Joseph following the death of her husband, Joseph’s father.
“It has been a year since my husband died and left me living in a six roomed house only to be shocked by the coming of Joseph claiming that he is the son of the late.
“He introduced himself to me after burial and declared that he was going to stay with me at his father’s house.
“He is ever assaulting me whenever I ask for anything and he is aggressive to me yet I am now a mother to him,” she said.
Disputed the allegations.
“I have never raised a finger at her trying to beat her.
“She is lying to the court, this is my father’s house and we also deserve this privilege.”
“I helped my father to build the house she is now living in and she has no right to chase me away.
“The reason why I stayed with her is because I am no longer employed and I cannot be a tenant somewhere when my father’s house is there,” he said.
