THE late liberation war hero and former Commander Zimbabwe Defense Forces General, Vitalis Zvinavashe’s son is in trouble after he allegedly chased his father’s widow out of her premises.
Richard Zvinavashe, was on Monday hauled before Mbare magistrate, Stanford Mambanje answering to a charge of contravening the Domestic Violence Act and another charge of unlawful entry.
Richard (50) is up in arms with his stepmother, Margret Zvinavashe aged 56.
Prosecutors alleged that he teamed up with his friends on January 13, this year before they scaled up a security wall at Margret’s place of residence in Tynwald.
The court heard that once inside, the group broke padlocks to gain entry into the house.
It is the State’s case that the gang went on to change all keys to the premises and the house thereby denying Margret access to her plot and house.
The former army general’s son is however denying allegations.
But the State claims there were builders who were at the premises and are ready to testify against him.
