A LANDLORD from Njube suburb in the city of Bulawayo escaped death by a whisker after his tenant caught him enjoying the fruit of Eden with his wife in the middle of the night last Saturday.
While other town dwellers were enjoying the Intwasa Arts Festival koBulawayo, drinking their sorrows away, few individuals in Njube enjoyed free drama when a landlord at E Square fled his house after he was kicked out by his tenant who found him in his marital bed with his wife.
Neighbours were awakened by noise as the tenant was shouting and throwing bricks at the landlord who ran away. A source who witnessed the saga, learnt that the tenant, who is a taxi driver in Gweru, drove late that night from Gweru to Bulawayo without informing his wife, a vendor who sells fruits and vegetables.
Upon arrival, he parked his car a few metres away from home and used a spare key to open the door. He was shocked to find his beloved wife engaging in sex with the house owner.
He threatened to kill the landlord. The philandering wife, who was a in nightdress which was too revealing and attempted to flee with the landlord, also received a few slaps before she was shoved into a car, with her husband saying he was taking her to her family.
