IN a dramatic incident a married woman went overboard in verbally attacking her love rival telling her that her private part was torn apart, wide open because of sleeping with married men.
The mini-drama happened last week on Sunday at around 2pm near a bar at corner 6th Avenue and Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo Street.
It is said Cathrine Sibanda (40) was walking home from a church service when she saw her husband parked near the bar and headed to him.
While she was having a conversation with her husband, Nontokozo Gumpo (43) arrived after a few minutes.
It is said all hell broke loose as a heated argument ensued between the two love rivals resulting in Nontokozo firing a salvo at Cathrine.
“Sifebe sothuvi. Your vagi_na is torn apart and wide open. You take after your mother who died pr0stituting. Go away,” the court heard.
Cathrine hit back saying there was nothing wrong with standing with her husband and Nontokozo must not have qualms with it because she was their former maid not wife to her husband.
Within minutes spectators had already gathered to watch a free drama unfolding before them.
Cathrine sprinted to Bulawayo Central Police Station and made a report. Nontokozo was arrested.
Nontokozo was arraigned before Bulawayo magistrate Amanda Ndlovu.
She pleaded not guilty to a criminal insult charge.
Nontokozo said: “ I fell in love with him when I was their maid and at one point we stayed together after I stopped working for them.”
Cathrine said she knew Nontokozo as their former maid, not lover of her husband.
The magistrate remanded Nontokozo out of custody to next week on Monday.
Hardlife Mhaka prosecuted.
