A man from Chief Budzi’s area in Bikita has been ordered to pay two beasts for proposing love to his brother-in-law’s curvy wife.
Farai Muchakabarwa from Gambakwe Village took advantage of the standoff between Levison Mabika and his wife Chipo Bengula and started proposing love.
The court was told that the proposals started after Bengula’s parents took their pregnant daughter back home to Chipinge because Mabika had not paid lobola.
It is while Zengula was at her parents’ place that Muchakabarwa started sms messages proposing love to the former. Bengula responded to the messages thinking that they were coming from her husband but was put aback when Muchakabarwa proposed that she abort her pregnancy so that they can start a new life.
She discovered that it was Muchakabarwa who was playing the mischief and she told her parents who allowed her to go back to her husband and sort out the mess. Muchakabarwa was trapped and then brought to court.
Chief Budzi heard that Muchakabarwa had promised to look after Bengula better than her husband.
