A woman from Gokwe says she went to bed with her son-in-law as a token of appreciation after he looked after her when she was ill.
The disgraced woman Mary Marimirofa from Chadyamako Village in Gokwe was caught by her husband Edmore Mushipe, in bed with their son-in-law Peter Dube. She snapped at her husband telling him that she was paying him (Dube) in kind for taking care of her when she was sick.
She also taunted her husband saying her son-in-law was “hotter” in bed than him.
The adulterous couple was brought before Chief Nemangwe charged with committing an abomination. Chief Nemangwe said the two had probably been having s.ex for sometime.“What happened is that when Marimirofa fell ill, her husband who has two wives failed to raise money to take her to hospital until his son-in-law Dube came to the rescue.
When Dube took his mother-in-law to Gokwe Hospital he constantly visited her until she fully recovered. That’s probably the time the two fell in love.“Marimirofa was always inviting Dube to their home and her husband suspected nothing until he was tipped by some villagers that the two were seeing each other. He initially dismissed the rumours until the night he caught the two in bed.
“Since Mushipe has two wives, Marimirofa would invite her son-in-law to sleep with her each time the husband would be with another wife.“On the night he caught them, Mushipe was tipped by some neighbours who saw Dube sneaking into Marimirofa’s bedroom hut”, said Chief Nemangwe.
He further said when Mushipe went to Marimirofa’s bedroom hut he was reportedly greeted with some funny noises coming from the two lovebirds who were apparently making love. “When he tried to forcibly open the door, Marimirofa refused saying it was not her duty to sleep with him.
“When he finally gained entry through the help of some neighbours he got the shock of his life when he found his son-in-law stark nked hiding under the bed”.He added: “When the matter came before my court Marimirofa who initially bragged to her husband that her son-in-law was better in bed than him, later confessed saying the s.ex act was a token of appreciation to her son-in-law for paying her hospital bills and medication”.
Chief Nemangwe said he fined Dube two beasts and a goat.
