A DZIVARESEKWA based club wheel-spinner was on Monday left nursing injuries after he was given the thrashing for care_ssing a truck driver’s wife in their matrimonial bedroom.
Blessing Lunga was saved from further beating by the truck driver only identified as Baba Tino and residents after police quickly moved in and dispersed the crowd baying for the disc jockey’s blood.
The entertainer sustained head injuries and a swollen right eye and his wife was called to the scene by the ghetto youths who sympathised with him.
However, tables turned against Baba Tino who was arrested for violating the national lockdown health precautionary measures.
Chief among them being the gathering of people to mete instant justice thereby failing to observe social distance.
He was set free after counselling but was still heart-broken.
Baba Tino said he experienced a double blow after catching his wife with Lunga in his matrimonial bedroom and being fined for violating national lockdown measures.
“Lunga is the one who violated national lockdown by leaving his house to seduce my wife after he learnt that I had left to work,” said Baba Tino.
“I could have furnished you with more information pertaining to the contents of love messages I discovered in my wife’s mobile phone but the police have turned the tables against me.
“It is better for you to go and talk with Lunga who violated national lockdown directives, I do not want to say much since the issue is now being handled by police,” said Baba Tino.
Lunga’s wife told H-Metro that she only witnessed the entertainer being escorted by police from the scene and was ordered by police officers to remain calm to avoid commotion.
“To be honest with you I was not shown the alleged love messages said to have between exchanged between my husband and the truck driver’s wife,” she said refusing to identify herself.
“Police quickly warned me over making noise and ordered me to go and collect my husband’s national identity card.
“I never suspected my husband of cheating on me for the past three years we have been together and we are still to be blessed with children.
“He left home claiming that he was visiting his friend where he wanted to collect music discs unaware that he was visiting a married woman.
“Baba Tino sent a threatening message midnight to my husband saying the war is not yet over.
“He came this morning (yesterday) to meet my husband and made further threats despite the case being handled by police,” she added begging H-Metro not to publish the story.
Lunga denied cheating with Mai Tino arguing that she is in love with his friend.
The DJ said his friend does not have a mobile phone and he was using his to communicate with their truck driver’s wife.
“It is true that I was caught with Mai Tino but she is not my lover as alleged, she is in love with one of my friends,” said Lunga.
“My friend is the one who was using my mobile phone in communicating with Mai Tino since he is still to buy his own phone.
“Yea I was attacked and police rescued me after they were quickly informed by my fans.
“Usazondiburitsawo wangu pakaipa huya tisangane pandinoridzira pa Hub 24 izvezvi,” said Lunga.
Although Mai Tino could not be reached to give her side of the story, H-Metro witnessed relatives along Leopold Takawira Street where the incident took place to resolve the issue.
Baba Tino barred H-Metro from interviewing his wife.
