A Zimbabwean woman has filed a lawsuit against a former family friend for allegedly hooking up with her husband.
Marvelous Marufu, is suing her husband’s coworker Ratidzo Nyamuchengwa for the sum of $50,000 damages, claims she suffered “humiliation, grief, and suffering” as a result of the loss of her marriage and love.
Marufu claimed in a High Court hearing that on March 19, 2018, her spouse Albert Mhondoro changed their customary law union to a monogamous formal marriage.
Marufu stated she discovered her husband’s infidelity when she overheard him on the phone with Nyamuchengwa professing love for her after the upgrade, revealing that the defendant got a wedding gift for her.
“Defendant (Nyamuchengwa) even purchased a wedding gift for the plaintiff (Marufu). This not withstanding defendant enticed and alienated plaintiff’s spouse’s affection from plaintiff and harboured him in adulterous relationship.
“At all material times the defendant was aware of the marital status of plaintiff’s husband and moreover she would visit plaintiff’s home, sometimes in the company of her husband Terrence Mawire, such that they eventually became family friends.”
Marufu claims Nyamuchengwa’s adultery with her husband has caused her to lose her husband’s love, affection, and friendship, and she walked out of their matrimonial house on December 26, 2020.
She alleges that Mhondoro, is now living with Nyamuchengwa, who has also dumped her husband Mawire.
