A 26-year man allegedly sneaked into his neighbour's bedroom and had sex with the wife after pretending to be the husband.
Police spokesperson Inspector Philisani Ndebele confirmed the incident, which occurred on Friday.
Insp Ndebele said Clement Ndou from Togwe area, Zimbabwe, visited his neighbour's wife at about 8pm and pretended to be her husband before having sexual intercourse with her once.
"At about 8pm on Friday, Ndou proceeded to his neighbour's house while her husband was out for a drink. He knocked on his neighbour's bedroom door and the woman, who had gone to bed, unlocked the door assuming that it was her husband. After unlocking the door, she immediately went back to bed and Ndou joined her in bed. Still assuming that the man was her husband, the woman had sexual intercourse with Ndou once before he went outside," said Insp Ndebele.
Insp Ndebele said after the encounter, Ndou immediately went outside.
"She was surprised why the man went outside and decided to follow him, only to realise that it was their neighbour. The matter was reported to the police, leading to Ndou's arrest. Investigations are still underway, said Insp Ndebele.
He urged members of the public, especially men to desist from abusing women and girls, saying police will not hesitate to arrest such people.
