BEING naked in front of your mother is considered taboo in African culture. However, Vusani Privilege Sibanda (37) of Sizinda suburb in Bulawayo walks naked in the presence of his mother.
Whenever his mother questions him, he verbally and physically abuses her.
This came to light when the mother, Priscilla Sibanda, applied for a protection order against her son.
In her affidavit, she said: “Vusani Privilege Sibanda is troubling me because, whenever he drinks beer, he hurls insults at me and my grandchildren.
“He would order them to move out of the house. At times, he walks naked in front of me, and I’m now afraid that he could end up raping me.”
The mother said whenever she tried to reprimand him, he turned violent and bashed her while calling her a witch.
She said her son was also destroying property.
She further said he was suicidal because, after every argument, he would threaten to kill himself.
According to the mother, her son was also at loggerheads with his brother, and would threaten to chop him into pieces each time they had an argument.
Presiding magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube granted the protection order in the mother’s favour.
The magistrate barred Vusani from assaulting and insulting his mother.
Vusani was also barred from ordering Sibanda’s grandchildren to vacate their family home. – B-Metro
