Dokora Embroiled In Domestic Dispute With Ex-wife
Former Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, Lazarus Dokora, has filed a domestic violence charge against his ex-wife, 31-year-old Mercy Hanyani.
Dokora, who is the complainant, was on Monday slapped with a warrant of arrest by Magistrate Joseph Mundondo after he failed to appear in court to testify on allegations of domestic violence.
The 61-year-old University of Zimbabwe lecturer appeared before magistrate Mundondo to withdraw the charges against his ex-wife who is a teacher at Vainona High school.
Both Dokora and Hanyani reside at house number 2 Leopard Close in Borrowdale West, though the former claims that the latter is his ex-wife.
On August 5 2019, Hanyani reportedly caused commotion after she attempted to open the door to the maid’s house with an unknown object. The maid, Gamuchirai, is also Dokora’s niece.
At several occasions, Hanyani also caused a lot of disturbances such as spilling a pot of relish on an open fire and depriving other dependants of food.
