BUHERA - Two male teachers from Bhegedhe Secondary School in Buhera spent a hair-raising 12 hours locked in a house after a man who works in South Africa found them having a nice time with his wife in his matrimonial home.
Moneymaker Ndamuka and Tichaona Jakata were allegedly caught in the matrimonial home at around 7pm and were locked up together with the wife until the next day when Budzi's husband had gone around collecting witnesses including his wife Susan Budzi's relatives.
The incident happened in Bhegedhe Village.
Chief Chamutsa from Bhegedhe confirmed the incident and said he held a trial for the teachers and they both pleaded guilty and were ordered to pay three beasts each as damages.
He said he has since sent his rulings to Chipinge Magistrates' Court for confirmation.
Budzi and her husband have since divorced.
Bhegedhe school head, Langton Mamvura was represented at the trial of the two teachers by a senior teacher. He however, declined to comment without a clearance from the District Schools' Inspector.
Chief Chamutsa said Budzi's husbandreceived a tip-off that Budzi was having a relationship with the teachers. He came back from South Africa unnoticed and stormed into his house at around 7pm where he found the teachers, Ndamuka and Jakata in the matrimonial home.
Although the chief declined to comment on it, some sources said that the wife was in a sexual relationship with both men.
However, during the trial Jakata said he was the one who was in a relationship with Budzi while Ndamuka is the person who was sent by the former with the love proposals since he was closely related to the wife's husband as a nephew (muzukuru)
"Budzi's husband was shocked by what he saw and locked the three inside," said the Chief.
"It is true that the two teachers were found with Budzi in the house. Their case was brought before my court and they did not waste time in pleading guilty said he is the one who was in love with Budzi. Ndamuka said he was also in love with the complainant's brother's wife.
"What it means is that the two teachers were in adulterous relationships with wives of two brothers although Ndamuka is closely related to the complainant," said the Chief.local news
