A pregnant woman has camped at her married lover’s workplace, sleeping in the toilet. This was a desperate bid to force him to accept the pregnancy and provide for her.

But Hama Murwira has now taken Sthabile Masuku to court seeking a protection order.

“I was in a relationship with Sthabile Masuku and we separated in September last year. She is now harassing me claiming the pregnancy she is carrying is mine. As a result of her claims that I impregnated her she is now coming to my workplace to harass me in front of my workmates.

“She once tried to forcibly stay at my matrimonial home and I chased her away before she resorted to camping at my workplace where she was sleeping in the toilet. She is always mocking me saying zidhara (old man) and in response I would be asking her whether I was putting on a mask when I proposed love to her so that she couldn’t see that I am old,” said Murwira.

Murwira said that he dumped Masuku after he discovered that she was double-crossing him with his neighbour.

But Masuku said :“We fell in love in May last year and I dumped him in September after I discovered that he was married. After we broke up we immediately got back together that same month after she begged me to reconcile.

“During that time I was never with anybody else and that is why I am sure that it’s his pregnancy. Whenever I go to his workplace I want him to give me money to buy the baby’s provisions,” responded Masuku.

Magistrate Tinashe Tashaya said the issue of the pregnancy could only be resolved when the two parties go for DNA tests before he ordered Masuku not to verbally and emotionally harass her “ex-lover” and visit his workplace. b metro
