HATE between in-laws never cease to amaze. Ita��s either a daughter-in-law hates a mother-in-law or a son-in-law does not see eye to eye with his mother-in-law.
However, a woman from Mpopoma found herself in a worse predicament, as her father-in-law has made himself judge, jury and almost executioner each time she and her husband have a disagreement.
Nelybert Chikaka from Mpopoma has accused her father-in-law John Muchabaiwa who resides in Cowdray Park of going to her house just to insult and assault her.
a�?Each time I have a misunderstanding with my husband my father-in-law comes to my house unannounced and then he starts insulting me, calling me names before assaulting me saying I do not behave.
a�?I really dona��t understand him. He comes to discipline me according to him yet I am not his wife,a�? said Chikaka.
According to Chikaka her father-in-law was violent.
a�?He drives those mushikashika cars and I think thata��s where his awful behaviour comes from. He is abusing me in broad daylight and it is so humiliating as someonea��s wife to be beaten by your father in-law,a�? added a sobbing Chikaka.
When B-Metro caught up with Muchabaiwa he narrated his side of the story.
a�?Chikaka is trouble, she is the worst daughter-in-law as she does not listen when told what to do and does not respect her elders.
a�?She wants me to set an appointment when going to my sona��s house, what a disgrace,a�? said Muchabaiwa.
Asked if the assault accusations were true he said: a�?When a child does not listen, you discipline them, so thata��s all I will be trying to do.a�?
Chikakaa��s husband urged the B-Metro crew not to publish the story.
a�?Kindly respect our privacy and not publish such a matter as it will result in hate in the family,a�? added Chikakaa��s husband.
