A 30-YEAR-OLD woman handed over a token of divorce to her husband last week after she was caught between the sheets with a married lover in Kentucky Cottages near Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport.
Abigirl Bhimbiri argued that she was not aware of what her husband Mubati was up to in Guruve where he is a police officer.
She confirmed accommodating her married lover, Tonderai Mukobo, who resides in Hatfield.
“We lived separately with this guy for some time only for him to return claiming that I am his wife because he paid lobola,” said Bhimbiri.
“He was enjoying himself wherever he was, but people are pouring the blame on me just to tarnish my image. Besides, there is a dispute within our family,” said Bhimbiri, a mother of two children.
Mubati was reported to have cried when he caught the two between the sheets and decided to leave them on their matrimonial bed.
“I am stationed in Guruve and upon returning home, I arrived around midnight and found the two in my bedroom,” said Mubati.
“I was shocked and felt powerless. I also realized the consequences of taking the law into my hands and besides, the man looked physically fitter than me.
“I was emotionally affected and concluded that my wife needed spiritual deliverance.
“What I saw best was to leave the two to finish their s**t and I visited her aunt and narrated everything.
“We returned to the house with family members and the boyfriend was still there and she openly told me before family members that she had decided to divorce me.
“Our two children are now living with my aunt and I have nothing to do, but to move on without her.
“It’s a bitter pill and I didn’t want this story published considering my job and status,” said Mubati.
Mukobo confirmed his illicit affair with Bhimbiri saying the latter told him that she had separated with Mubati.
“Brother, the truth is I dated this lady for nine months. She told me she divorced almost two years ago,” said Mukobo.
“Honestly speaking I wouldn’t be in love with somebody’s wife.
“To my surprise, the man came and claimed to be Abigirl’s husband so that is the story in a nutshell.
“He did not assault me and the lady also confirmed the divorce in front of her relatives by giving Mubati a token of divorce.
“That is what transpired on the day in question,” said Mukobo.
A close relative who attended the family meeting told H-Metro that the Bhimbiri family’s spirited efforts to plead with her not to hand over a token of divorce in anger were in vain.
They went on to threaten Bhimbiri, even approaching her bosses at her workplace to terminate her contract, but she was not moved.
“Mwana akaroora zvakafadza musha wose saka hatina kumboziva kuti chabaya chikatyokera mwana atoita mbudzi yadya mumera saka yatorunza,” said the relative.
Bhimbiri and Mukobo were captured in some videos and photographs during the family meeting.
