A jilted man from Bulawayo’s Iminyela suburb reportedly went berserk when he discovered his wife was cheating on him and her sister’s phone was regularly used to communicate with the newly found love.
Without wasting time, Fortune Bhebhe (28) thoroughly beat his wife Simelinkosi Mbambo to get the truth of what was happening behind his back.
This led to Mbambo moving out of their home and Bhebhe contacted the other man in the picture, Blessed Moyo.
The two men proceeded to Mbambo’s place so she could choose the one she wanted to be with.
However, their plan was not fruitful as she refused to act as they had ordered her to.
That is when they discovered her sister Sethuliwe Dube was supportive of the two timing antics.
Out of anger, Bhebhe started insulting Dube through messages for her role in the infidelity issue.
Dube was not amused and reported the matter to the police, leading to Bhebhe’s arrest.
He appeared before magistrate Nyaradzo Ringisai facing a charge of sending abusive messages.
Circumstances are that on 25 August at around 10pm, Dube received an abusive message with unprintable words from her sister’s husband and he reported the matter leading to his arrest.
He pleaded not guilty citing that he had been provoked as it was disturbing to discover that his sister-in-law was supporting such unacceptable behaviour.
The magistrate considered his plea and put it across that in such times of HIV and Aids prevalence, Mbambo was putting their lives at risk.
Bhebhe was cautioned and discharged.
