An inmate at Harare Central Prison is going through heartbreak after his wife was impregnated while he is serving his 20-year jail term.
Tendai Muza, 34, says he now gets solace from the Bible after attaining a diploma in theology while incarcerated for car robbery.
“I heard that my wife was impregnated by another man whilst I was here.
“I was disturbed after hearing that, but I just let it go since I am serving 20 years in prison,” said Muza.
Muza said he was reformed.
“I graduated while here in jail and I hold a diploma in theology. I am grateful for what I have achieved so far in prison,” he said.
Muza spoke of his pessimism after being jailed, he said he thought of committing suicide after the magistrate’s judgment.
He took the dip chemical which was used to clean toilets at rotten row court, then he poured it into a Cascade container. He drank the poisonous chemical but he survived since he was immediately rushed to hospital.
“The bible changed me and I realised that I am good at preaching that is why I decided to join Amphic College and I am happy that now I hold a diploma in theology.
