A woman from Mzilikazi suburb has been arrested for threatening to share her husband’s alleged mistress’ nude pictures as punishment for sleeping with her better half.
Linda Govha (29) was arrested for threatening to leak police officer Jerina Marvelous Madondo’s nude pictures as punishment for allegedly having an affair with her husband Admire Kaisi who is also a cop.
In November last year Govha found love messages between her husband and his colleague Madondo who are both employed as police officers.
Out of spite Govha then sent WhatsApp messages to Madondo accusing her of dating her husband.
She further sent a nude picture of an unknown female to Madondo alleging that the picture was hers and threatened to expose it to the Press.
“I am coming to Pumula Police Station, I want to show you that your va_gina is not important after it’s published in the Press you swine,” said Govha in the WhatsApp messages.
Madondo filed a complaint and Govha was arrested for sending abusive, obscene, threatening messages over the phone as defined in section 88 of the Post and Telecommunications Act Chapter 12.05.
Appearing before Bulawayo magistrate Adelaide Mbeure, Govha did not plead guilty to charges laid against her.
Madondo told the court that she knew Govha’s husband Kaisi because they worked together last year.
‘‘I only know her husband because last year we worked together at Mzilikazi Police Station for three weeks in October 2018,’’ said Madondo.
“When Govha sent me abusive messages I asked her if she had sent the messages to the wrong person because I did not recognise the person in the nude picture she had sent,’’ she added.
The court also heard that Govha went to Pumula Police Station to look for Madondo and file a complaint against her.
She was turned away by an Assistant Inspector Nkomo who told her Madondo was off duty.
However, Madondo said it was Govha’s husband who advised her to seek legal help to deal with her.
‘‘When I called Kaisi, I told him his wife was constantly harassing me and I have run out of options on what I should do.
He advised me to have her arrested for abuse and harassment,” said Madondo.
Govha was remanded in custody awaiting sentencing.
