A MAN from Mapani area in Zezani, Beitbridge almost lost his manhood after his wife bit off a chunk of it during a fight.
According to a source, Sibangilizwe Ngamula’s marriage was always on the rocks.
At one point his wife deserted him and went to her parents’ home only to return two weeks ago to talk things over with her husband who had just returned from South Africa where he works.
But her hope turned into despair as things took a nasty turn.
“The couple had been having problems over infidelity. Ngamula used to accuse his wife of seeing other men in the area while he was in South Africa. Last week an argument arose over house keys,” said a family insider.
The source went on to say at the height of the argument his wife punched him on the face, grabbed his genitals and twisted them.
“She grabbed his genitals and twisted them. He fell down wailing in agony but there was no one to help him,” he said.
She sunk her teeth into the private parts.
“She bit off the penis’ forehead and a large portion of foreskin got removed. He was rushed to Beitbridge hospital where he’s receiving treatment,” said the source.
A nurse who requested strict anonymity said some veins were partially damaged. But the nurse assured he would not have an erectile dysfunction.
