It was a web of cheating for a 31-year-old man who after spending a night with prostitute, got home to meet his wife right in the same act with her boyfriend.
Mbuso Sithole from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, reportedly told his wife that he was going for the funeral ceremony of a close friend in another town but diverted to visit the commercial sex worker he was dating.
Unknown to him, his wife, Sgcebhe Moyo, had her own plans as she invited her lover to come and keep her warm during the night.
The cheating web was uncovered after her husband returned home only to catch another man with his wife, right in his bed.
According to Sithole, he took a poisonous substance, but was only saved by the antidote his mum who is a nurse gave him.
He explained to his family members that it was the pain of catching his wife with another man in his bed that drove him into wanting to commit suicide, but also blamed himself for lying to his wife that he was going to a funeral while he was actually with his girlfriend.
He said as he walked home from his girlfriend’s house at about 5am, he felt something was amiss when his wife took too long to open the door.
He said, “The next thing, the window opened and a half naked man, whom I recognised as Ra, shot out and sprinted away before I could react.
“Yes, it’s true that I wanted to commit suicide as I drank rat poison. I’ve a girlfriend called Blessing Chiedza Banda and on Thursday, I told my wife that I was going to a funeral wake when actually I was going to sleep over at her place.
“I wanted to kill myself because I couldn’t imagine my wife having a boyfriend.”
