A Bulawayo man from Sizinda suburb has developed a weird habit of barging into his sister’s bedroom when she is having sex with her husband.
As if that is not enough, Gertrude Shungu has had to endure insults and humiliation as her younger brother, Michael Shungu has called her a prostitute that sleeps with any man who asks for her cookie.
Efforts to reprimand him have been abortive as Michael would beat her for having the temerity to call him to order.
Gertrude had to apply for a protection against her younger brother.
“My name is Gertrude Shungu, I’m applying for a protection order against my younger brother Michael Shungu. We live together in our parents’ house in Sizinda suburb.
“He comes home very drunk and enters my bedroom while I would be sleeping with my husband and he would label me a prostitute that sleeps with any man who wants sex,” she said.
She added: “On many occasions he has entered my bedroom and found me naked and hurled insults at me, he would then beat me. He even insults my mother-in-law while accusing her of siding with me. When my in-laws visit us, he would mess the toilet just to fix me.”
Michael said: “We argued once when I asked why she didn’t leave any food for me.”
The presiding magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube granted Gertrude a protection order against her abusive younger brother.
Michael was ordered not to physically and verbally abuse his sister. ■
