IN a typical example of broken family ties, a Chimanimani man, Verison Musungwa last week dragged his biological son, Blessing, to court for allegedly stealing his hosepipe.

It was the State case led by Mr Witness Nyamundaya that on June 14, 2012, Blessing went to his father's garden where he stole the 100m long hosepipe.

Verison reported the matter to the police and investigations revealed that Blessing was the one who had stolen the hosepipe. He was subsequently arrested.

However, Blessing who pleaded not guilty to the charges told the court that his father had fabricated the allegations because he hated him so much and would do anything to make him suffer.

"My father hates me your worship. He does not approve of my wife and he loves my brothers who work in South Africa.

"He is accusing me of stealing because he wants me to suffer the same way he troubled my brother until he committed suicide," said Blessing.

However, Verison dismissed his son's claims and told the court that it was his son who resents his parents.




"He does not love us as his parents. He told us never to set foot at his homestead unless we want to die. You stole the hosepipe and you did not want me at your house, how else did you expect me to recover it without involving the police," said Verison.

Mr Makamera Waini who presided over the case adjourned it to January 30.
