A man from Chalisega village in Gokwe under chief Njelele’s jurisdiction drank a dipping chemical in an attempt to kill himself after he caught his wife on their matrimonial bed with another man.
The man, Noel Shumba, is said to have taken too long to come back home after he had gone to look for a cow that was missing. When he returned unexpectedly, he found his wife, Pindai Mahofa in bed with her boyfriend.
The boyfriend, who was dressed in boxer shorts, took to his heels.
Shumba is said to have bashed his wife. After that, he took the liquid dipping chemical and consumed it.
Shumba was then rushed to hospital.
Pindai refused to comment: “Who am I talking to? Kindly spare me on that issue.”
Noel said: “It’s true that I caught her (Pindai) with another man and the guy is not from this village. That’s what I can say for now.”
Village head Tendai Zaranyika confirmed the incident and said as the traditional leadership, they discouraged adul_tery.
Zaranyika went on to say community members should engage community leaders or relatives if they face problems in their marriages.
