Former MDC-T Member of Parliament Timothy Mubhawu has won a protection order against his wife, Elizabeth Molleen Mubhawu.Harare Civil Court magistrate Mrs Gamuchirai Siwardi granted the order in Mubhawu's favour which barred Elizabeth from physically, verbally or emotionally abusing him.Mubhawu claimed that Elizabeth was in the habit of bringing boyfriends to his house.

He told the court that he wanted Elizabeth banned from coming to his place of residence as she was also economically, verbally, psychologically and physically abusing him.

The former MDC-T legislator also claimed that Elizabeth was in the habit of making false reports against him to the police just to fix him. He said his wife was also in the habit of abusing his relatives whenever they visit.

However, Elizabeth denied the allegations claiming that they were lies and fabrications.

In early June this year, Mubhawu appeared in court accused of striking his wife with a machete and she later withdrew the matter after he asked for forgiveness.
