‘She called me a witch’

13 November 2017

A HARARE woman says that her neighbour emotionally and verbally abuses her, calling her all sort of names.

Taurai Chawewa approached the Harare Civil court seeking protection order against Caroline Runhare.

“Your Worship, this woman disturbs my peace.

“She is my neighbour and she harasses me all the time.

“Last time she insulted me describing my vagina saying, I don’t have labina minora and that I am bad in bed.”

Chwewa added on saying:

“She states that I am a witch and this has resulted in people fearing to socialise with me.

“I am a traditional healer and I help people with different problems using herbs so that is why she calls me a witch.”

In response, Runhare said:

“I am opposed to what she is claiming.

“She doesn’t even spend most of her time at home as she is always away with her work.

“I don’t even insult her or even call her a witch as I am also afraid of her.

“Her children are always indoors and they don’t interact with others so she is lying.

Magistrate Larzin Ncube granted the protection in Chawena’s favour.
