Sunday Times reported that the former beauty queen did not dispute that the marriage had broken down. However, she denied abusing her husband and his children and further accused Ndlovu of being the abusive partner.
“I accept that our marriage is practically over. If applicant is to remove me from the property he must do so lawfully and for cogent reasons. I now sleep in a separate bedroom with my daughter. This was a decision taken for my safety and also to avoid sexual imposition by the applicant. In spite of the abuse meted out by the applicant he would still attempt to have sexual intercourse with me but I will not be in a position to entertain him sexually.
“I deny that I have abused the plaintiff and his children. I have tried to be a mother to the minor children, however, we failed to bond as a result of the applicant’s constant interference. I have never acted in a manner to cause harm to the children”
They also accused each other of being poor performers in bed. While Ndlovu said his wife “is not too sweet”, Dhlakama fired back by saying that her husband was “weak” like a woman and “just a lump of dead flesh.”
Ruling on the case, Presiding magistrate Adelaide Mbeure ordered Dhlakama not to physically, verbally and emotionally abuse her estranged husband and also not to go to any place he would be employed or carrying out his business.
