CHIREDZI – A recently qualified female lawyer has been ordered to pay $3 000 adultery damages to the wife of a prominent Chiredzi man whom she is now staying with.
Chiredzi Magistrate Tafadzwa Mhlanga last week ordered Farai Dzingirai who did her internship at Mangwana and Partners to compensate Karukai Makombe who is legally married to Archibald Makombe, a Chiredzi based businessman under the Civil Marriages Act, Chapter 5:1.
Karukai who was represented by Mbizo, Muchadehama and Makoni Legal Practitioners initially claimed $10 000 being $5 000 for adultery, $3000 for loss of companionship and $2000 for loss of support.
She told the court that she was legally married to Makombe in 2006 and as a result they sired 3 children aged 10, 5 and 4. She said sometime in October 2015 her husband fell in love with Dzingirai and she came to know of it in December 2015. After knowing about it she sent a copy of marriage certificate to Dzingirai but the adulterous relationship continued until the two sired a child.
She also claimed that she last had sex with her husband in October 2016 and this was after persistent demands as he had already left the matrimonial home to stay with Dzingirai.
Dzingirai who was being represented by Charles Vhudzi of Zimbodza and Associates did not dispute having engaged in the adultery relationship with Makombe.
However, she denied knowledge of the marital status of Makombe at all material times.
She stated that Makombe had told her that he was a divorcee. She also stated that Karukai had caused the breakdown of her own marriage and also denied having sired a child with Makombe.
Magistrate Mhlanga granted Karukai $3000 and gave the breakdown of his ruling as follows: $2 000 for injuries and $1 000 for loss of consortium.
