A WOMAN from Bu­l­awayo stabbed her hus­band with a screw driver af­ter ac­cus­ing him of hav­ing an af­fair with their ten­ant.

A court heard that the woman got home on Mon­day night when her hus­band was al­ready asleep and started ac­cus­ing him of hav­ing an af­fair with their ten­ant.

Lan­gelihle Moyo (44) of Old Mag­wegwe suburb pleaded guilty to as­sault­ing her hus­band Ma­jaha Moyo (38) when she ap­peared be­fore West­ern Com­mon­age mag­is­trate Miss Tancy Dube. She was re­manded in cus­tody to Au­gust 10. Prose­cut­ing, Mr Mu­faro Mageza said on Mon­day night, Ma­jaha ar­rived home at 10PM and his wife ar­rived an hour later.

Lan­gelihle im­me­di­ately started ac­cus­ing him of in­fi­delity when he opened the door for her.

“Com­plainant got home at around 10PM and found his wife not yet home and he slept. Ac­cused per­son got home at 11PM and the com­plainant opened for her. She im­me­di­ately started ac­cus­ing her hus­band of hav­ing an ex­tra mar­i­tal af­fair with their ten­ant,” said Mr Mageza.

“Ac­cused per­son went to wake the ten­ant and de­manded ren­tals money. The ten­ant said she didn’t have the money at that mo­ment so she went back to her room.

“She took a screw driver and stabbed her hus­band once on the left shoul­der.”

Mr Mageza said Ma­jaha re­ported the mat­ter to the po­lice and was re­ferred to Mpilo Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.

In his state­ment, Ma­jaha said ac­cu­sa­tions em­anated from nowhere.

“I opened the door for her but from nowhere, she started ac­cus­ing me of hav­ing an af­fair with our ten­ant. She went on to stab me with a screw driver. I asked our ten­ant for help and we went to re­port to the po­lice” read the state­ment. — @ tan­nytkay his wife’s
