A headman from Mphakama area in Nkayi under Chief Sikobokobo in Matabeleland North is demanding ten beasts after allegedly catching his wife in a compromising position with a neighbour in the bush last Tuesday.
The incident which has become a subject of discussion in the community occurred at about 8pm when the headman’s wife Sithuli Mafu was allegedly caught with a neighbour
Contacted for comment, the headman Mphokwakhe Ndlovu told B-Metro that on the fateful day his 26-year-old wife, whom she customarily married in March 2012 after the death of his first wife of 20 years, said she had a running tummy and quickly dashed to the bush.
Ndlovu said he got worried after realising that Mafu had been gone for more than 30 minutes and then followed her.
“I had to follow her. I was suspecting that she had developed a serious running tummy. Earlier on she went to relieve herself and ended up having serious complications and we had to carry her home,” he said.
However, all hell broke loose when he got near the scene where the two alleged love birds were having a nice time.
“When I got near the bush where she was I called out but there was no response. When I switched on the torch I got the shock of my life when I saw my wife trying to put on her under garments while our neighbour was zipping up his trousers.
“There was a used condom on the ground. I believe they have been meeting for some time. She is always saying she has a running tummy and leaves for some time to the bush. But the funny part is that she used to leave in the evening,” said Ndlovu.
