A cheating married woman in Rujeko C in Masvingo, had sex with her tenant in the bathroom on Tuesday while her husband watched television in the lounge.
When she took a long time to return from the bathroom the husband followed her to the bathroom and rumbled her. The incident which has become a subject of discussion in the entire Rujeko suburb took place at around 9pm when the woman who has been identified only as Mai Shield was found having a good time with a man identified as Chingwa in the bathroom.
According to one resident, who only identified himself as Sam, the woman was watching television in the company of her husband, only identified as Mr Tafi or Baba Shield. He said while the two were enjoying watching television, Mai Shield allegedly received a message on her phone after which he told her husband that she wanted to take a bath as she was feeling hot.
“Mai Shield received an sms on his phone after which she left for the bathroom on the pretext that she was going to bath. The truth of the matter is that Chingwa whose philandering with the married woman is suspected to be spanning many years had sneaked into the bathroom and sent an sms calling her lover,” said Sam.
When the two met in the bathroom, the woman locked the door and started making love. However, all hell broke loose when the woman’s husband knocked on the bathroom door to find out if Mai Shield was still bathing.
“Mr Tafi had to come to the bathroom to find out if his wife was still in, bathing, since she had taken long. The man was worried about the time the woman had spent in the bathing room and went on to find out, only to get the shock of his life,” he said.
He said when Mr Tafi knocked at the door the love birds were having a time of their lives that Mai Shield could not respond to the knock. However, when Mr Tafi whose suspicion had mounted threatened to break the door the woman said she had just finished bathing and would open the door. Mr Tafi is said to have got frustrated that he forced open the door and he found Chingwa, zipping his trousers while Mai Shield stood motionless.
A scuffle ensued between Chingwa and Mr Tafi but eventually Chingwa managed to break free from the enraged man’s grip and made good his escape. Chingwa is said to be a tenant at one of the man’s houses in Rujeko A and also Mr Tafi’s friend.
“You know Chingwa is a friend to this man but for reasons better known to him he has been seeing his wife since time immemorial and as that is not enough he is a tenant at one of the man’s houses in Rujeko A. The man has two houses,” said another resident.
He said the woman is known to be of loose morals and last year she was again caught making love by his daughter who is now married.
“The woman has a knack of sleeping with her tenants, last year she was caught making love to a man who works at one of the local funeral assurance companies in Masvingo. We thought she has stopped but it shows she will never,” he said.
After being caught being red-handed the woman escaped to her daughter’s house in Rujeko B. The man went to report the case to Rujeko police base where he left the officers in stitches when he brought a plate full of Sadza as exhibit.
“Mr Tafi allegedly went to report the case at the police where he showed the officers on duty, a plate full of Sadza, that he believed could have been left for Chingwa, by his wife,” the resident said.
Masvingo provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Peter Zhanero could neither confirm nor deny the incident and promised to check with Rujeko police base.
“That incident is not to my knowledge and chances are that it could have been handled by our officers at Rujeko base. They could have counselled the couple and decided not to record it but I will check,” said Insp Zhanero
However, a police source at the base confirmed receiving the case but professed ignorance on whether a docket was opened or not.
