A woman who was mourning the death of her close relative revealed in court that her husband ws pestering her for sex at the funeral service.
Rumbidzai Gapare told the court that she was failing to mourn the death of her relative who passed away recently because her husband Chengetai Nyabadza was disturbing her demanding sex.
It seems it's one of his sexual fantasies. This came to light at the Harare Civil court where Rumbidzai was seeking a protection order against Chengetai.
"We have a very close relative who passed away and the funeral was being held at our house, but I was finding it hard to concentrate because my husband would insist on having sex with me. He was sleeping in the tuck shop and I was sleeping in the dining room with other women but he would call me from the dining room demanding to have sex with me," said Rumbidzai.
She went on to tell the court that Chengetai was also in the habit of intentionally tearing condoms that they would be using while having sex.
"I am not yet ready to have another child so I told Chengetai that we would only sleep together using condoms but I have realised he deliberately tears the condom so that I fall pregnant and lie that it burst due to fricton," she added.
Responding to the claims, Chengetai told the court that Rumbidzai was not giving him his conjugal rights.
"The problem that I am having with my wife is that she is depriving me of sex. She moved out of our matrimonial bedroom and is sleeping with my mother in the guest room," said Chengetai.
Magistrate Miriam Banda, who presided over the case, granted the protection order which bars Chengetai from sexually and physically abusing his wife.
