Member of Parliament (MP) for Mochudi East, Isaac Davids’s wife, Banyenyi Davids has filed a marriage-wrecking suit against her husband’s alleged mistress, Motshegetsi Lesaane.
Initially scheduled for Wednesday at the Mochudi customary court, the case was postponed indefinitely, apparently due to some incorrect facts on the summons.
The Voice team on Wednesday morning spotted Davids’ wife milling around at the Kgotla seemingly to amend some of the facts in the summons.
Although the disgruntled wife could not reveal details of the marriage wrecking case, it emerged that her husband has a different but related to his marital drama case pending before the courts.
High court documents leaked to The Voice have suggested that because of Davids’s infidelity” the MP will soon appear at the High Court facing a charge of unlawful dismissal.
In the court papers, the embattled MP’s former employee, Petrus Tau claims that Davids unlawfully dismissed him from work because he (Tau) refused to protect him (Davids) against the scorned wife when she aggressively confronted him about his alleged cheating.
Tau states that he was employed at the Mochudi East Constituency Offices back in December 2014 as a senior Administration officer/researcher.
“During the course of 2016, Mr. Isaac Davids begun to give me instructions, which were not within my scope and course of duty, to wit. Mr. Isaac Davids would instruct me to look after his cattle, sell his cattle on his behalf and collect personal debts during working hours,” Tau states in the court papers.
He continues, “additional to the above instructions, Mr. Isaac Davids would consistently drag me into his family life issues. For instance he would scream at me for failing to protect him from accusation of infidelity hurled at him by his wife.”
The MP’s conduct, Tau further argued, made his life very difficult due to how the MP would become “petty and unreasonable.”
He was fired on December 20, 2016 but received a letter of dismissal dated December 16, 2016.
Reasons for termination of employment were stated as “ a relationship with Davids that had broken down irreparably.”
“In the premises it is my settled position following legal advice of my attorneys that my termination by the 2nd respondent (the clerk of the national assembly) was both unlawful; illegal substantively and procedurally, unfair, malafide and unreasonable,” Tau argued.
