IT’S a scenario that has been played out countless times in films and TV dramas and sometimes even for comic effect.
But when it really happens it takes a great deal of bravery to face or deal with it at the same time.
A man reportedly fell into a “coma” after a heartbreaking discovery of his wife being sexually sampled by their herdboy.
Elvis Mutale from Mundabala Village under Chief Saba in Binga who had reportedly gone for an all-night prayer failed to come to terms with the sight of his wife Miriam Ncube groaning in pleasure while being poked by their herdboy only identified as Collen.
The incident reportedly happened on Friday last week.
According to a source from the area, on the day in question, Mutale returned home unexpectedly at around midnight and found the two lovebirds —Ncube and Collen — busy like rabbits in his bedroom hut.
It is alleged that before the upsetting discovery some of the neighbours had earlier informed Mutale that his wife was cheating on him with their herdboy and his worst fears were confirmed on the day in question.
“It was indeed a wrong timing for the two lovebirds — Ncube and Collen — when Mutale who had gone for an all-night prayer decided to return earlier than expected and caught them red-handed in the act. Mutale who failed to come to terms with the sight subsequently collapsed.
“Out of panic his wife immediately alerted neighbours who came and rendered assistance leading to him regaining consciousness some hours later. Ncube who had initially remained tight-lipped later confessed to neighbours what had really happened,” said the source who requested not to be named.
Collen reportedly went into hiding from the time he was busted by his boss with his wife.
Ncube reportedly told neighbours that the sex act was a once-off thing adding that she had decided to do it with the herdboy since sex with her “prayerful” husband had dwindled.
“She tried to justify what she had done and make it look like it was her husband’s fault that he was starving her. Mutale however, decided to forgive his wife for the sake of their three children,” said the source.
Mutale’s family, the source further said, was shocked and disappointed by his decision to pardon Ncube. This was after they reportedly tried to talk to him to leave the adulterous wife but he never listened to anyone.
When Ncube was confronted over the phone, she got “defensive” and refused to confirm nor deny the cheating accusations.
“I have the right to speak or not. I will not talk about my marital life with someone I don’t know,” she said.
She also refused to let this reporter speak to her husband saying she was not at home with the cellphone which they reportedly share.
