Man sells mothers property to buy marijuana
Published: 01 July 2015 (1000 Views)

Twenty four year old Tapiwanashe Matanhire has sold his mother’s property to raise funds to buy marijuana, a magistrate was told.

Charity Rathliwe dragged her son to a Harare Civil Court accusing him of selling her household property.

She said her son was in the habit of ransacking her bedroom looking for money to buy drugs.

Rathliwe was seeking a protection order against Matanhire whom she accused of disrespecting her as his mother.

"He sells my household property and valuables without my consent and uses the money to buy marijuana,"  said Rathliwe.

She also said Matanhire has the nerve of smoking  marijuana inside the house.

"He comes to my workplace demanding money and if I don't give him, he verbally abuses me with obscene words in front of my workmates.

"Each time he smokes marijuana he starts physically abusing his young sister and destroying my household property," said Rathliwe.

She told the court that she was now living in pain and fear because of Matanhire's violent behaviour.

However, Matanhire did not show up at the court.

She also ordered Matanhire to keep peace towards Rathliwe at all times.
