FORGET dramatic soap storylines for entertainment, Bulawayo’s Entumbane suburb is apparently where all the real action is at.
A woman from that suburb, Privilege Hove who is also an illegal money changer popularly known as usiphatheleni, recently cheated death by a whisker when she was stabbed on the arm with a kitchen knife by her lover’s wife after she allegedly found them having se_x in her rented room.
Hove and her unidentified lover’s mother Thobekile Kwenda stay at the same house and Hove’s lover and his wife reportedly stay in Kadoma.
When they were busted in the midst of fornicati0n, Hove’s alleged lover and his wife had reportedly visited Kwenda. It emerged that there was an action-packed drama when the enraged wife busted her husband pants down with Hove.
Having suspected that it was Kwenda who exposed the illicit relationship, Hove is now threatening to decisively deal with her.
A fearful Kwenda last week approached the Bulawayo Civil Court seeking a protection order against Hove.
“I am being threatened by Privilege Hove. She is threatening to hire people to deal with me. She was in love with my son and they were caught red-handed in the act by my daughter-in-law. They then fought with my daughter-in-law and she was stabbed on the arm with a knife.
She reported the matter at Entumbane Police Station but she later withdrew it at the instigation of my son who is also paying for her medical expenses,” said Kwenda.
She said Hove was now telling people in the suburb that once her wound heals, she would deal with her as punishment for ending her relationship with her son.
“I am now seeking a protection order because my life is in danger. She is telling people that once her hand heals, she wants to deal with me. I pray that since we are staying at the same house, she must not talk to me or use my things,” pleaded Kwenda.
Hove who apparently feared the humiliation of a trial didn’t come to court to defend herself leading the presiding magistrate Nomasiko Ndlovu to grant the order in favour of Kwenda.
The magistrate ordered Hove not to disturb Kwenda’s peace by verbally harassing or threatening her in any way.
