Seedco Boss Writes Letter to NPA Against Ex-Wife’s Alleged Vexatious Litigation
A prominent businessman, Michael Ndoro, has written a letter to the acting Prosecutor General, Mr. Nelson Mutsonziwa, accusing his ex-wife, Precious Star Jenami, of abusing the criminal justice system to harass him and his partner through frivolous charges. Ndoro has requested that the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) launch an investigation into the dockets related to the cases in question, claiming that there has been a deliberate oversight to continue the harassment.
Ndoro cites case number CR150/02/22 CRB9229/22, reported in February 2022 by Jenami at Avondale Police Station, as an example of the alleged abuse. He claims that he was wrongfully incarcerated in September 2022 using Form 242, and that the matter has been postponed every month since then, with a trial date set for March 7, 2023.
Ndoro alleges that this is in total disregard of a court order issued in May 2019 by Mrs. Justice Chirawu-Mugomba, which instructed Jenami to stop instituting other legal proceedings to do with companies in which both parties have an interest in until the divorce matter in case number HC 9611/18 is finalised.
Ndoro further alleges that Jenami accused him of contempt of court in case CR 105/06/22, related to a Domestic Violence Case DV 87/19, but that the Provincial Prosecutor in Goromonzi Magistrate Court advised her that her case was frivolous and cautioned her and her lawyers for being vexatious. Jenami then proceeded to file a complaint with the NPA office in Harare, and the files for both these cases and another case against her – CR 04/07/22, where she had unlawfully broken and entered his factory at his place of residence with armed thugs in July 2022 – were requested by NPA head office and transferred to Marondera Magistrate Court.
Ndoro has requested that the NPA review the cases against Jenami to determine their legal standing and any potential violations or contempt of court. The allegations against Jenami are serious, and if proven, they could have far-reaching consequences for both parties. The NPA needs to take swift action to ensure justice is served.
