A Victoria Falls man who could not accept that his wife of six years had left him will not be able to see her or their two minor children after a court ordered him not to communicate or visit.

Philimon Kachamukwara of Mkhosana in the resort town had been dragged to the Civil Court by his former wife Nosizi Ndlovu because he was stalking her and threatening her for ending their marriage.

“I admit I sent her text messages but it was because I was angry after she left me. I thought we could continue together because we have come too far since 2008 when we started staying together,” said Kachamukwara who works as tour guide.

He appeared before Victoria Falls magistrate Sharon Rosemani after his ex-wife, feeling insecure, approached the court seeking a peace order because he was sending her threatening text messages while also calling her a prostitute.

The two separated early this year and Ndlovu told the court that their sons were now living in fear as their father says they are not his children.

She said: “The father of my two sons is stalking me and insults me through text messages. His children are now afraid of him and they now feel he is not their biological father”.

“He started threatening me when I told him I was moving out because I was no longer interested,” said Ndlovu without mentioning the reasons for ending the marriage.

She added: “He started sending me text messages threatening me with death and saying I was not supposed to end the marriage and I would suffer because of what I did. He would also send text messages to my friends telling them that I was a prostitute and he is not the father of my children,” said Ndlovu.

She was seeking a protection order saying she had moved on with her life and wanted her former husband to leave her alone as she was now in love with another man. The magistrate granted her the order.

Kachamukwara was barred from communicating with his former wife and was ordered not to send her text messages or visit her place of residence, intimidate or insult her. He is already paying $100 per month in maintenance for the two boys who will not be able to see him now.
