“My Life Is In Danger” – Retired Army General Weeps In Court

Retired Army Major General Samson Sikhulile Nyathi on Tuesday wept in court alleging that his life was in danger as his spouse was always abusing him.

Nyathi appeared before Harare magistrate Evelyn Mashavakure on a domestic violence matter, where he was accusing his wife, Noleen Nyathi, of always abusing him.

He begged magistrate Mashavakure not to throw away the domestic violence case, saying that he was living in a zoo.

Nyathi said at one point, his wife poured hot cooking oil on him and at one point assaulted him with a shoe.

Despite the allegations, magistrate Mashavakure removed the wife from remand, saying the docket was incomplete as it did not include a warned and cautioned statement for the accused. Nyathi said in court:

_Your worship, I am a blind man. My life is in danger because of my spouse. I am living like in a zoo where you worship. I have been to the police on several occasions, but nothing materialises._

_If you release her, my life will be in serious danger. I cannot live a peaceful life without her being restrained._

He said he had even approached different organisations for assistance to no avail.

Noleen’s lawyer Job Sikhala said the court had done well by removing her from remand, adding that constitutionally, a trial could not take place without a warned-and-cautioned statement from the accused.

Sikhala said the person could not be charged twice on the same facts.

The matter was then removed from remand and will proceed by way of summons.

Nyathi is not the first person with a military background to claim that they have been abused by their wives.

In 2012, then Army Commander, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, claimed that his then-wife Jocelyn Chiwenga had subjected him to violent beatings.

Chiwenga told the High Court that he had been trying to divorce Jocelyn, whose violent actions had driven him away from their matrimonial home.

Jocelyn, however, dismissed the reports, saying her marriage involved periods of physical and emotional abuse by her husband, who she says also threatened to shoot her.
