A woman yesterday left the gallery in stitches when she revealed that her husband was being influenced by his girlfriend to do bed-wetting each time he comes home drunk.
Tendai Mabveko told Harare Civil Court magistrate Babra Masinire that her husband David Andirigu was in the habit of physically abusing her whenever she tried to reprimand him against bed-wetting.
“He started urinating on the blankets after falling in love with his girlfriend,” she said. “His nephew is the one who told me that my husband was being influenced by his girlfriend to urinate on the blankets to fix me.”
Mabveko claimed Andirigu was in the habit of taking all their groceries to his girlfriend’s house.
“I had never seen such a shameless husband like him in my entire life,” she said.
“He is in the habit of taking our matrimonial property and food to her girlfriend’s house and if I try to ask about it he becomes very violent.”
Mabveko said she ran away from their matrimonial home because of Andirigu’s violent behaviour.
Andirigu denied the allegations, saying he was not doing anything wrong to Mabveko.
“I am not in the habit of physically abusing her as she is alleging, we only had an altercation once when I took her mobile phone and she is the one who first attacked me,” he said.
Ms Masinire granted the protection order in Mabveko’s favour which barred Andirigu from verbally or physically abusing her.
She ordered the two to live in peace.
