Does the forbidden fruit taste different when a woman is pregnant?
A man from Mahlabatini area in Bulawayo ditched his pregnant wife of five years and went to cohabit with a small house after he allegedly made sensational claims that his wife had become tasteless and had a watery VAG!NA!
The man, Sandile Makhwelo, deserted his wife, Pretty Makhwelo, after he impregnated her. As of 5 June this year, he has been staying with a girlfriend in the same community.
Pretty revealed the sad news at the Inyathi Civil Court before magistrate Stephen Ndlovu.
"After my husband impregnated me, he told me that I am tasteless during sex and that he impregnated me by mistake. But this is surprising because he is the one who broke my virginity. He vowed that he would never help in any way in the upkeep of the child. I am therefore applying for maintenance for the upkeep of the upkeep of the child as he is employed as a miner," she revealed.
The rejected woman also produced her husband's payslip in her bid for child support.
"I have a pay slip that she his net salary is $495 and due to that I request $250 for the upkeep of the child," she said.
However, Sandile who has vowed not to pay any cent towards looking after his child pleaded to pay a lesser amount to what Pretty was demanding.
"I have two children that I look after and I pay school fees for them. As a result of that I ask to pay $150," said Sandile.
Magistrate Ndlovu ordered him to pay $180 instead.
