A 78-year-old man who depends on a catheter to empty his bladder has vowed that he would rather drink poison and die than spend the rest of his life without making love to his mistress.
Sekuru Makiwa of Hopely farm told H-Metro that he would risk everything – to remove his life-saving catheter or to end his own life by drinking poison – than to be denied conjugal rights with his new wife.
Sekuru Makiwa’s children from his first marriage told him to look after his ailing health and stop having sex.
My wife Annah Takaendesa passed on in 2013. After my wife’s death, my children want me to desist from having sex with my second wife.
I am now looking for poison so that I drink it and die so that it becomes the end nekuti mwana haangapinde mugumbeze mangu achiti hamungaroore mumwe mukadzi.
I did not divorce my wife, but she died, he said.
However, Sekuru Makiwa said it was not only about sex but that his new wife took care of all his needs that his children could not handle.
I need someone who will care for me, one who will do laundry for me, one who will wipe me if I soil my clothes. Up to when are they (children) going to be cleaning my soiled clothes?
He added that his mistress wanted to get acquainted with his children and be part of the family but they keep brushing her aside.
She (his mistress) always asks my only son to ask his sisters in South Africa to accept her first so that she can come back.
These children chased her away, he said.
The 78-year-Old loverboy confessed that he used to be a player back in his day, saying he used all sorts of tactics to get girls to fall in love with him.
Haa ndoraive basa redu iroro. Ndozvataifarira chaizvo. Whenever I was not accepted by any girl, I would firmly inform her that his ancestral spirits did not accept a witch in their clan.
The next time I would come across the girl, she would readily accept to be in love with me, he said.
