A Harare man got the bashing of his life at the hands of his wife after he was caught having sex with another woman.
Atanas Mapoka confessed that he was brutally assaulted by his wife Shelter Gomwe after he was caught having sex with another woman and was still nursing his wounds.
Atanas opened up at the Harare Civil Court where he had been dragged by Shelter who was seeking a protection order against him.
"It is up to the court to grant this woman the protection order she wants but the truth is, this woman is the one who is violent. She doesn't come to rural areas where I have been staying lately. She recently came and assaulted me after she decided to take in as my second wife. I still have wounds on me and I see no reason for her to be granted the protection order that she is requesting," said Atanas.
In response, Shelter told the court that she needed a protection order against Atanas to stop him from evicting her from the house.
"I am homeless as we speak. My husband doesn't want me to stay at the house that we built together. He is doing this to give room for his girlfriend whom he is cheating on me with. I also want him barred from verbally and physically abusing me," she claimed.
Magistrate Tafadzwa Muvhami who presided over the case ordered Atanas to keep his peace towards Shelter and not to evict her from their matrimonial home despite being beaten heavily for cheating with another woman.
