Chitungwiza mayor, Philip Mutoti, 45, is embroiled in a nasty divorce with his wife amid revelations that he was bedding at least 15 women and paying for the services.
The town father allegedly pays US$100 per night for the services of the women, Alice Kuvheya, 31, revealed. Mutoti was also accused of using sex enhancing pills in the shenanigans.
Alice reported cases of rape and domestic violence at St Mary's Police Station against Mutoti. She claims that she was infected with a deadly virus by the mayor when she was restored two years ago.
There were ugly scenes yesterday at Mutoti's residence with the police and the mayor's wife being locked out-as they moved in to arrest him and collect her belongings at their St Mary's home.
Mutoti hit the headlines for snatching a married woman last month and subsequent wreckage of the marriage.
"I am tired of him; after he infected me anga ava kundiudza kuti ndiri kumusemesa. He can have up to 15 girlfriends and gives them US$100 as payment. In order to manage the whole night engaging in sex, he buys the Blue Diamond Pill," she said.
He raped me in 2013 which is when he infected me and as soon as I fell sick akanditi kana usiri kunwa mapiritsi, watoparara.
"He brings his girlfriends home including the one who was published to be having an affair with him," Alice said.
Alice indicated that Philip had a violent behaviour.
"Philip is of a violent nature, he can send bouncers to beat up someone if they do not get along," she said.
She said after Philip's illicit affair got published in the newspapers, he started sleeping in a separate spare bedroom.
"My life became horrible after you exposed his illicit affair, his sister would tell me that I would eat when the dog had had its own fair share of food. With this ill-treatment came death threats that led to me leaving the house and going to live at the Musasa Project house. I don't even have any clothes," Alice said.
Alice opened up on how she was denied her property by the mayor.
"As it is, he holds on to his late wife's property which makes me wonder if he'll let go of mine,"she said.
On Thursday Alice lodged a complaint that saw two dockets being opened against Philip and he is being charged with rape and domestic violence.
Philip's sister, Eva Mutoti, 38, continuously chased away H Metro saying her brother had already had his reputation torn apart when his illicit affair was exposed.
"Munoshaya basa rekuita, ndimi makapinza hanzvadzi yangu basa here, inga makamunyora wani, tibvirei pano, anosvika pagate pano ndinomurova," said a furious Eva.
According to Alice, when the police called Philip, he led to them saying he was in Kadoma but when the police visited his house, he had locked himself in and would not cooperate with them.
However, before the police visited Philip, H Metro had seen him entering his residence.
As Alice was waiting for her papers to be sorted out at the police station, she passed out and was rushed to Chitungwiza Central hospital.
Philip could not be reached for comment by the time of going to print and his phone went unanswered.
Police said Mutoti handed himself to them before being arrested.
