In a classic case of African style of marriage breakdown wherein a woman is humiliated and stripped down to her panties, a senior manager with Stanbic Canny Mapfumo has successfully sought and secured an eviction order against his former wife Sarudzai Mukungunurwa after the collapse of their 17yr customary marriage.
Disturbing to the eviction, neither did Mapfumo nor the Zimbabwe Justice system consider the welfare of the three minors directly affected by this breakdown who were equally thrown into the streets in the wee hours of Tuesdays 05th November.
Mukungunurwa could not be protected by the Zimbabwean courts despite mitigating factors as she been married to Mapfumo for 17yrs, have three children and had even started an ECD School at the premise which she also was criminally wrestled out of the business even though she is the licence holder for the school.
It is on good authority according to court papers our reporters were shown, Mapfumo is in default of maintenance payments as well has threatened his former wife many times, numerously using Mabelreign ZRP Station details in over a dozen frivolous reports. Efforts to get hold of the Officer in Charge CRLO Mabelreign have been fruitless.
Her matter has been refered to one of Zimbabwe’s pro-active women’s organisation, Zimabwe Women Resource Centre Network (ZWRCN) who are working with other responsible stakeholder to offer support.
ZimOnline News team in collaboration with Mtaka Media are still investigating more systematic abuse allegations on this matter and will be producing reports and all information is verified.
