Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Sukul­wenkosi Dube-Matutu Plumtree Correspondent

A 35-YEAR-OLD Bulil­ima wo­man who was in the habit of bed­ding her neigh­bour’s 15-year-old herd­boy in her mat­ri­mo­nial home was al­legedly busted af­ter her hus­band found the ju­ve­nile’s shirt in their bed­room.

Vil­lage head, Mr Nanat­siwe Sikula, said the in­ci­dent, which left vil­lagers in shock, oc­curred in But­she area.

He said the mat­ter was re­ported to him by the cheat­ing wo­man’s hus­band af­ter he dis­cov­ered the of­fence on Mon­day.

Mr Sikula said Tsheme­lani Ncube started hav­ing sex­ual in­ter­course with the ju­ve­nile in May.

‘’There is an in­ci­dent which was re­ported to me about an el­derly wo­man who was in the habit of sleep­ing with a 15-year-old boy dur­ing her hus­band’s ab­sence. The boy is em­ployed at her neigh­bour’s home­stead as a herd boy,’’ he said.

Mr Sikula said Ncube’s hus­band re­vealed that he found the boy’s shirt in their bed­room hut on Mon­day and ques­tioned his wife.

He said his wife later re­vealed that it be­longed to their neigh­bour’s herd boy.

Mr Sikula said Ncube’s hus­band then sum­moned the ju­ve­nile to his home­stead where he ad­mit­ted that he had slept with the older wo­man.

‘’Ncube’s hus­band told me that he be­came sus­pi­cious af­ter see­ing the shirt as he had never seen it be­fore. He ques­tioned his wife un­til she re­vealed that it be­longed to the ju­ve­nile and they had slept to­gether on sev­eral oc­ca­sions in their home.

‘’The boy also ad­mit­ted to have slept with Ncube but he claimed that she had per­suaded him. He also ex­plained that he left the shirt in their house af­ter she re­quested it,’’ he said.

Mr Sikula said the boy re­vealed that Ncube first called her to her house in May and per­suaded him to sleep with her.

He said Ncube called him on sev­eral oc­ca­sions at night while her hus­band was away.

Mr Sikula said he re­ferred the mat­ter to the po­lice who re­vealed that Ncube will ap­pear in court in due course.

Chief Masendu said he had heard about the mat­ter but was yet to re­ceive full de­tails.

He de­scribed Ncube’s ac­tions as a dis­grace to the com­mu­nity.

He said in­ci­dences of men who slept with ju­ve­nile girls had be­come com­mon but cases of fe­male per­pe­tra­tors were rare.

‘’It is dis­turb­ing to learn that a wo­man would do some­thing like that to a boy who is old enough to be her son. This just shows that moral val­ues are fast be­ing eroded in our so­ci­ety,’’ he said. —@DubeMatutu
