TWO Harare men’s rowdy behaviour cost them the luxury of drinking at a city joint after they were yesterday served with a court order barring them from getting nearer or entering the place.
Magistrate Tendai Rusinahama granted a peace order against Wellington Matsvororo and Nash Mutize following an application by Douglas Marawa, managing director of Marlborough-based Sayfen Bottle Store, who accused the pair of verbally abusing his employees and patrons.
Part of the order reads: “It is ordered that the 1st and 2nd respondent (Matsvororo and Mutize) refrain from visiting the applicant’s place of business and disturbing the applicant’s peace in any manner or visit within 200 metres of applicant’s bottle store.
“The 1st and 2nd respondent should refrain from assaulting, insulting and threatening the applicant’s employees and customers in any manner.”
In his application, Marawa accused the pair of chasing away his customers by their rowdy behaviour.
“They shout at employees and even at other customers using vulgar language. They even threaten our employees and customers. This is disturbing our business as some customers have already stopped coming to buy drinks at our bottle store,” said Marawa.
Matsvororo and Mutize consented to the order.
