DURING the dead of the night Stanford Phiri would go to his now ex-girlfriend Shelter Ncubea��s place but whenever her family refused him entry he would break in.
He would leave a trail of destruction such as broken burglar bars, windows and doors. It got to a point that Sheltera��s uncle Nkosizile Nkala sought legal assistance to put a stop to it.
a�?We no longer have peace at home because of my niecea��s boyfriend who comes to visit her in the middle of the night. When we ignoreA� him he breaks the burglar bar, door and window to forcibly get inside and see my niece,a�? said Nkala.
He further revealed that although his niece dumped Phiri he still continues with his bad behaviour and the whole family is living in fear.
a�?Although they are no longer together he still comes to our home and even when he spots us together he fights me,a�? added Nkala.
Phiri said he fails to control his temper and it is worse when he wants to meet Ncube.
a�?I fail to control my temper when I get angry and that is the reason I behave that way because I will be eager to see her.
a�?From today I accept that she is no longer interested in me,a�? said Phiri.
The presiding magistrate Tancy Dube granted the order in the applicanta��s favour and Phiri was instructed not to go to applicanta��s home, communicate and to keep peace towards the applicant.
