Row Over House…Ill brother locked out
A critically ill Chitungwiza man is living on the street as a result of an ongoing row with his younger sibling over their deceased parents’ house in Unit J, Chitungwiza.
The man, Intergrate Soroti (38), who is a critical diabetes patient, was chased out of his rented apartment and is living outside his late parent’s home with his wife and four minor children. I
ntergrate’s brother Hondo is said to have declared war on his sibling and has refused to give him shelter since Monday. Intergrate told H-Metro that when he returned home, his brother refused to let them into the house and told him that he and his wife weren’t his relatives.
Hondo also said the house was his and there was nothing Intergrate could do about it.
“He told me that my wife and I aren’t his relatives, hapana zvamunondibatsira nazvo, the Government, the police can’t do anything to me because the house is mine because I am the lawful owner of this house,” he said.
Initially, Integrate and his wife Loice Josias, 32, were living at his parent’s house, and when his mother passed away in November last year, his brother Hondo secretly looked for a place for them to stay.
“He looked for an apartment for me without my knowledge. When I was admitted to hospital, he then moved my belongings to that house without my knowledge, and when my wife returned from the hospital visit, he took her to the new house and told her that he would be paying the rentals, just to get rid of me.
“This past weekend the landlady told me to move out because the rentals weren’t being paid for the last three months, she took our things out.
I tried calling him in vain,” said Intergrate.
His wife Loice said their former neighbors at the rented apartment then organized transport for them to be moved to their family home.
“Zvinhu zvaburitswa panze, vavakidzani vedu vakazobatanidza mari so that we could get transport to bring us back home.
When we got home, we knocked at the gate until they had no choice but to leave us outside because my husband’s brother was ignoring our knocks.
“He hasn’t opened the gate ever since and we are just sleeping outside with his bedridden brother,” she said.
Hondo has been seen several times leaving his house through the back by jumping the precast wall and hasn’t been using the main gate ever since his brother and his family moved there.
Hondo’s phone was unreachable when H-Metro visited their residence, but the team was reliably informed that he had been seen jumping the wall getting in prior to our arrival.
As soon as the news team left, Hondo threw a letter into one of the neighbors’ yards in which he said he was grieving his mother’s death and is bitter over how his brother treated their mother when she was alive.
In his letter, he also said, the war, just as his name, will last till forever as he is selling the house soon after the lockdown and it will end when he dies.
neighbors offer helping hand
INTERGRATE Soroti’s neighbors have expressed sadness over his brother’s actions saying they fear that he may lose his life on the streets as he is critically ill.
“We are very saddened by the developments that have happened between these two brothers. Integrate is critically ill, literally on his death bed. “He is in fact supposed to be hospitalized.
I could have taken him in, but his state is scary. If he dies in my house then what,” said one of the neighbors who preferred anonymity.
The other neighbors have organized medication for Soroti as his condition is dire. “I had to sacrifice one of my diabetes injections yesterday because his condition was now critical and he couldn’t speak.
For today’s medication, we have put money together, and some of his childhood friends in the diaspora have sent money for us to get him more medicine,” said another.
The other neighbors have put together food for Soroti and his four children who are homeless after being locked out by his sibling Hondo.
The neighbors confirmed that they have seen Hondo leaving the house through the back, jumping the precast wall, avoiding his brother and his family, who are living right outside his gate.
Surrounding churches have donated food to the family, which has set a fire next to the gate where they cook their meals.
