Two sisters have approached the Zvishavane Civil Court seeking a protection order against an abusive husband.
The duo from Mazvihwa approached the Zvishavane Civil court accusing their husband of physical and verbal abuse.
The applicants Mrs Violet Machazire and Mrs Kiwa Machazire told the court that the husband John Sibanda is in the habit of assaulting them with stones, logs and using abusive language.
They pleaded with the court to order their husband to stop the abuse.
In his defence, Sibanda denied all the charges.
Presiding Magistrate Charity Tonongera granted the protection order valid for 10 years in favour of the applicants. The respondent was ordered not to physically and verbally abuse his wives.
