A woman has accused her husband of forcing her into prostitution for his own selfish gain.
An annoyed wife identified as Junior Phiri, accused her husband of making her sleep with a total stranger whom he needed to get some money from.
According to Phiri, her husband Douglas Hazvinei Gondo, claimed he was supposed to get the sum of $3,000 (N1,410,000) from the man, to be able to complete a project he had started.
Gondo however turned around to humiliate his wife after she had done the deed for his gain. He frustrated her, by calling her a prostitute, this led to his wife deciding to end the marriage.
Here’s what she said:
“This man is saying that I am a prostitute yet he is the one who pleaded with me to have sexual relations with a certain man so that he would go and claim money from him. Aiti anoda kusetera munhu trap so that he gets money to start a business. I am shocked that now he is saying I am a prostitute.
He has not been taking care of the family. I am the one who has been doing everything for the children. I used to be a cross boarder but not anymore. In fact I have told him a number of times that I am no longer interested in the marriage but he keeps forcing me to love him. Anoda kuita murume mubedroom chete (TRANSLATION:” he loves me in the bedroom only”)? Ndakakuudza kangani kuti handichakuda (TRANSLATION: I have told you many times that I do not love you) but you are still forcing me to be with you. Unodei pahure zvaunoramba uri pandiri (TRANSLATION: What do you want with a harlot? you’re still with me).”
According to Phiri, Gondo even dragged her to court after she reported a case of assault to the police. She said:
“He just brought me to court as a way of trying to shame me but the truth of the matter is that I am the one who takes care of the children. He does not buy anything for anyone. Our eldest child is now selling buckets in Mbare because their father is failing to take care of his family. My children have asked me to move out with them because they see how worthless their father is.”
Gondo had this to say about his wife:
“This woman who is my wife is a prostitute. She has so many lovers and the evidence is in her mobile phone which I confiscated. She uses her job as a cover for her promiscuous behaviour. She once lied that she was going out of the country for work and she went to sleep with one of her lovers.
She says she has to fend for the children and her parents so she has no other choice but to be a prostitute. One of her lovers is a doctor. I asked her to stop paying for the children’s school fees and to do anything for them because I wanted her to stop prostituting but now because she has failed to heed my words I want her to maintain the children and I.”
He also insisted that Phiri has to take care of their children, he gave his reason as:
“I want her to take care of the children and I and I know that she can afford to do so because she is a cross border who is also a hairdresser. She earns US$800 per month. She has no other children and no other husband except for boyfriends only. I am a vendor and I get about US$100 per month. My wife is capable of paying the said amount because she has the money.”
Na wa ooo!
