A BULAWAYO man caught getting jiggy with a string of women by his wife could be made to buy a new bed after she sued him for property damage.
Nonkazimulo Dube wants US$200 to replace the broken bed bought just last year, and will ask a magistrate to dissolve her marriage to Talent Tafara, accusing him of adultery.
In court papers, Dube of Luveve suburb, said her life had become a “living hell” since she exchanged vows with Tafara eight years ago.
Last year, she says in an affidavit, she caught Tafara romping with two different women on separate occasions in their family home.
She added: “He broke the bed not having sex with me but another woman… I cannot take this anymore. My life has been made a living hell since I got married.
“I do not want him anymore, what I want is for him to restitute me for the damaged bed.”
Dube said she had consulted a carpenter over her damanged bed and he had advised her that “judging by the way it was broken, something excessive might have been happening”.
“After asking my husband, he confessed that he had been having sex with another woman,” claimed Dube.
Ahead of a hearing at the civil court at the Bulawayo Magistrates’ Court on February 4, Tafara has filed his own affidavit in which he admits causing his wife “pain”.
He pleads: “I have caused her so much pain but I would love to reconcile with her. I messed up but I believe that everyone deserves a second chance.
“I am trying all possible means to get her back but she is failing to open her heart.
"She said that she was going to sue me for breaking the bed but the bottom line is that I do not have money."
