MVUTJINI, Swaziland, March 15 (UPI) -- A Swaziland woman said she followed through with a court order allowing her to remove all of her possessions from her ex-husband's house, including the roof.

Busisiwe Ginindza of Mvutjini said she and local police officers went to the house Thursday and executed the order from Manzini Magistrate's Court to remove everything she owned from the home she used to share with her husband, The Swazi Observer reported Monday.

Ginindza, whose repossessed belongings include the roof of the house, said her husband kicked her out in July and would not allow her to take any of her belongings, despite the fact that most of the items in the house were purchased with her money.

"I left my 14-year old son with him, but lately he has not been able to go to school because his father locked him out of the house," Ginindza said of her estranged husband, Sikelela Dlamini.
