A highly aggrieved wife has sought a legal assistance over her husband’s alleged sexual abuse on her.
The man, Bhekimpilo Ngwenya, who hails from Bulawayo in Zimbabwe was dragged to court by his wife, Maria Njovo.
Although the man vehemently denied the claims by his wife stating that the wife had an unusual craving for sexual intercourse inside the bush rather than the bedroom which has resulted in the frequent squabble between them.
Ngwenya who is a vendor told Magistrate Evelyn Mashavakure that he struggles to have sex with his wife as she often resisted using the bed in their bedroom, demanding to have sex “under open skies with the sounds and smell of nature around them.”
Ngweya said, “Your honour, I am uncomfortable with such an arrangement because I feel as if someone would be watching us the whole time. She is lying that I abuse her because i just can’t indulge her fantasies.”
On the other hand, the woman also a vendor applied for a protection order against her husband, stating that he was a sex pest who demands sex anywhere at anytime, according to reports.
She said, “Your Worship, I just don’t want be with him anymore. He harasses me whenever I meet him. He sleeps with me by force and doesn’t choose a place. He just sleeps with me wherever he feels like even in the bush.”
The woman also told the jury how her husband usually taunted her about her HIV status telling their child that she was going to die soon.
She added, “I was thinking of going back to him and fixing our marriage but he is harassing me. My child was also emotionally affected when she learnt about my status and she couldn’t concentrate on her studies.”
When the magistrate asked Ngwenya if he had a problem with the protection order being granted, he said, “The way she hates me now I think it’s best if it can be granted because If I get caught having sex with her in the bush, she will cry rape. I think this protection order will also protect me as well.”
“Your Worship, I and her sisters aren’t in good books. They’re the ones who told the child about her status. When I came to visit my child, one of the sisters chucked me out saying I’ve Aids and I infected Njovo. They said that in the presence of our daughter.”
The magistrate granted the protection order as requested with an order to the man to desist from further abuse on the woman.
