A ZVISHAVANE man walked in on his 60-year-old wife having sex with a 15-year-old boy on their matrimonial bed, leaving their marriage of 31 years on the rocks.
The incident which left villagers of Chimurenga-Chrome Dry in Neta tongue-tied happened on Saturday at around 9PM. Villagers said the lovebirds had been having sex behind the man's back for "a long time."
Sakhele Khumalo, 63, told the news crew that he is sending his wife Elizabeth Khumalo packing. He said he never wanted to hear his wife's name mentioned in his presence as she had exposed him to the ultimate humiliation by engaging in extra-marital sex with a boy young enough to be her grandson.
Elizabeth denied she was caught with the boy (name withheld because of age), and said she would only leave her husband if they shared their property.
"Elizabeth has done the worst thing imaginable. She has committed adultery with a boy the age of her grandson. I can't take her back, she has to leave my home and the property she's demanding will only be moved from my home over my dead body," fumed Khumalo.
Villagers narrated how all hell broke loose on Saturday when Khumalo got a tip-off about the affair.
They said he was not on duty at his workplace but pretended to Elizabeth that he was going to work at night.
"He left home around 7PM, boarded a lift towards work before disembarking after some distance. He went to a relative's homestead only to go home around 9PM. Upon arrival, he peeped through the window and was taken aback by Elizabeth who was screaming like a teenage girl with sexual excitement. An emotionally charged Khumalo then quietly locked the door from outside with steel wire before rushing to inform his relatives who had long known about Elizabeth's mischief," said a villager.
Khumalo and his relatives were treated to "pornography" as the two nude lovers were still caressing each on his bed, when the relatives smashed the door.
"On realising that they had been caught, the two bolted out of the rooms naked while holding their clothes before disappearing into the darkness. Up to today, no-one knows where the boy is," said the villager.
Elizabeth flatly denied the affair but confirmed that she had marital problems with her husband.
"I don't know what you're talking about. I'm a God-fearing woman who wouldn't dare do such a degrading thing in society. While I can confirm that we've marital problems with my husband, what people are saying is a lie. We've problems like any other family and our issue is being handled by the police as Khumalo is refusing to release my property," said Elizabeth.
A villager, who identified himself as Michael Ndlovu, told The Chronicle the teen had been having an affair with the granny behind Khumalo's back for a "long time."
"The affair between Elizabeth and the boy had become the talk of the village. Khumalo used to regard the boy as his son who does piece jobs in the village. He never thought he could be a rival suitor," said Ndlovu.
