Zimbabwe: Notorious Twins in Court

Notorious twin brothers were on Thursday taken to the Harare Civil Court for being disrespectful to their parents and being a nuisance to neighbours. Clifford Mutsikira and his twin brother Henry (junior) appeared before magistrate Ms Miriam Banda.

Their uncle Henry (senior) Mutsikira was seeking a protection order against the twins, whose age was not disclosed in court.

Henry (snr) told the court that he is staying with the twins at his father's house.

"Their biological father stays in the rural areas. I used to stay with my other elder brother at this house but he moved out after he bought his own house.

"He refused to go with these two because of their conduct. I have been staying with them for two months now but they are a terror to my family.

"They work in unison and are violent to my wife as well as children who live in fear of them," he said.

Henry added that their neighbours often complain about noise because they play loud music in the dead of night.

The twin brothers refused to comment on what their uncle said about their behaviour and only said they did not oppose the granting of the protection order.
