A Kadoma woman is crying foul after her husband of seven years dumped her for a cook at the school where he is the principal.
The woman, Tambudzai Patricia Sibanda, is angry at her husband, Givemore Bere, who dumped her for Veronica Mationesa Kachigwe, who is employed at the same school.

To counter that, Bere filed a protection order against her at the Kadoma Civil Court under case number P0 116/23.
She initially pressed assault charges before she withdrew them and opted for a protection order.
