A Bulawayo woman was bashed by her husband after being caught red handed sending adulte_rous messages to her alleged lover, at midnight.
Joseph Madakuvaka, husband to Marrian Moyo is reported to have bashed his wife for promiscuity before evicting her out of the house at midnight.
According to Mudavaka, Moyo packed her belongings out of shame and moved out of their matrimonial home, leaving him behind with their three children, when he had discovered his wife during the act.
Unapologetic Moyo, approached the Civil Court and filed for a protection order against her husband making claims that her husband is abusive.
I am customarily married to Joseph Mudavaka who is verbally, physically and emotionally abusing me in front of the children. The latest being on the 27th of October when he physically assaulted me before he dragged me out of the house and it was around midnight. He also chucked me out of the house when I was sick and is not financially supporting my family,” claimed Moyo.
Mudavaka responded to his wife’s contradictory statement, stating that the only reason he assaulted her was because of her sending adulterous messages to another man in the middle of the night.
”The reason why I assaulted her is that I caught her chatting to her lover in the middle of the night, I don’t have problems with her application for a protection order since I no longer had anything to do with her” said Mudakuvaka.
The estranged lovers appeared before the court presided over by magistrate Tinashe Tashaya, who ruled in favor of Moyo.
Mudavaka was reminded that promiscuity was not a criminal offence in contrast to physical abuse.
