CHIPO Mudadi, a Chivhu woman, who is being sued for $250 000 in damages for engaging in an adulter0us relationship with a married man, yesterday challenged the lawsuit in court.
Chipo was slapped with the lawsuit a month after her sister Enita Mudadi was ordered to pay $15 000 adul_tery damages at the Chivhu Civil Court.
According to papers filed at the court, Angela Chibasa of Chambara Township, Manyene in Chivhu is claiming $250 000 plus cost of suit and interest from Chipo, whom she claims is in an adulter0us relationship with her husband Arnold Fungai Chibasa, a pirate taxis owner.
Angela, the plaintiff, told magistrate Sam Chitumwa that Chipo was involved in an illicit affair with her husband while she was fully aware that the she and Arnold were legally married.
Chipo and Arnold had a child who is now 11 years old as a result of that adulter0us relationship.
Chipo dismissed Angela’s claims saying she did not know that Arnold was married when she dated him. She, however, admitted that she conceived a child with Arnold while she was a Form 4 pupil at Liebenberg High School in 2008.
