A woman yesterday told the court that her son was in the habit of demanding to share her bed every time he came home drunk.
Elizabeth Bheka claimed Nathan Takadza also verbally abused her using vulgar words in front of her other children. Bheka made the revelations at the Harare Civil Court where she was seeking a protection order against Takadza whom she accused of breaching her peace.

“He comes home drunk during midnight and knocks on my bedroom door demanding to share the same bed with me,” she said.

Bheka told magistrate Ms Ruth Kamangira that Takadza was trying to chase her out of her matrimonial home which was left in her name by her late husband.

“My son is threatening to set me ablaze or poison my food if I don’t move out of my house where he is chasing me out everyday,” said Bheka

She told the court that Takadza was in the habit of selling her household property and sometimes exchanged it for alcohol. Takadza did not turn up in court.

Ms Kamangira granted the protection order in default which barred Takadza from threatening and verbally or physically abusing Bheka.
She also ordered Takadza to keep peace towards Bheka at all times.
