Man Catches Wife In Bed With Neighbor At In-Laws
A man from Jotsholo, Matabeleland North Province, got the shock of his life when he caught his wife moaning in pleasure while indulging in sex with his neighbour.
The court heard that Attalia Khumalo (23), who is wife to Vusumuzi Ncube (45), visited her parents and after two days away, the suspicious Ncube followed her and arrived at his in-laws in the early hours of the morning.
He stood at the door of the room where his wife was sleeping and heard groaning sounds of pleasure. He then pushed the door open only to find his wife enjoying sex with their neighbour.
In a fit of rage, Ncube manhandled the neighbour and assaulted him all over the body. The undressed neighbour took to his heels.
Ncube turned to his wife and bashed her with fists and kicked her all over the body.
Khumalo sustained injuries and was ferried to hospital. After that she reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of her husband.
Ncube appeared before Lupane resident magistrate Ndumo Masuku facing physical abuse charges.
He pleaded guilty to the charge and said he got angry when he caught his wife indulging in sex with another man.
He was convicted and sentenced to 12 months in prison which were wholly suspended for five years on condition that he does not commit any offence of which physical abuse is an element for which he will be sentenced without the option of a fine.
In passing the sentence the court noted that Ncube was a first-time offender who pleaded guilty to the charge and showed some degree of contrition and did not waste the court's time by denying the charge.
The court also noted that the accused did not use a dangerous weapon to attack his wife.
