Elderly woman sues husband’s girlfriend


HARARE – AN ELDERLY married woman from Mbare said she had filed papers for adultery damages against a young woman from her neighbourhood whom she accuses of having a love affair with her husband who is believed to be a member of an apostolic church sect.

Although she could not reveal how much she was suing for Tsitsi Chiyangwa said she wants compensation from her husband’s girlfriend, Miriam Chiyamba for having an affair with her husband.

Tsitsi claimed that her husband, Andrew Chiyangwa, was her ‘property’ and by virtue of Miriam snatching him away from her – it was like destroying her property.

“I am married under Marriage Act Chapter 5:11 which states that a husband must marry one woman. “My husband is now sleeping at her house and she always accommodates him. “At one point she came to my place of residence in the company of three police officers demanding to take my husband,” she said.

She said that what irked her most is the fact that Miriam is of the same age to her third born child.
And that she vowed not to terminate her relationship with her husband saying it was part of her job.
“She told me that she came from Mutare to Harare to work and snatching other people’s husbands was her work.

“I just want her to leave Andrew Chiyangwa alone, he is my husband. “If the court leaves her continuing having a love affair with my husband I will do something that will end up with me being locked up,” she said. Miriam admitted having an affair with Tsitsi’s husband.

She said that she found nothing wrong in having an affair with Andrew. “I started having an affair with him in 2009 and we have a child together. “I don’t see if there is any problem with me falling in love with him,” she said.

However, magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti dismissed Tsitsi’s application on the grounds that the court had no mandate to stop the relationship.

    What the writer forgot to tell us are the ages of the plaintiff (Tsitsi), as well as of the husband. Being tole kuti elderly is not suffice. I am not sure if the photo accompanying the story (that is a real Gogo) is a genuine one.
