A Bulawayo woman is suing her former maid after she had an affair with her husband and she is demanding $2500 as compensation for impairing her dignity, B Metro reports.
Abigirl Ncube (Nee Mpofu) approached the Bulawayo civil court suing Nothando Sibindi for having an adulterous affair with her husband, Erick Ncube and siring a child in their relationship which reportedly started in 2017 when Sibindi was the couple’s maid.
In the court papers seen by the publication, Ncube also claimed Sibindi is running a flea market after getting financial assistance from her husband:
The plaintiff is married to Erick Ncube under a monogamous marriage in terms of the Marriage Act Chapter 5:11 which was entered in 2015. Ever since the period beginning 2017 the defendant has illicitly associated and engaged with the plaintiff’s husband in adulterous sexual relationship well knowing the marital status of the plaintiff’s husband.
One child has been born out of the illicit and adulterous relationship between the defendant and the plaintiff. This is despite several pleas from the plaintiff directed at the defendant to end her adulterous affair with the plaintiff’s husband, defendant is still continuing with the affair.
This after she had promised to end the affair in 2019. Plaintiff has been seriously hurt and her dignity impaired by the flagrant adultery and lack of remorse exhibited by the defendant.
…An order for the payment in the sum of US$2 500 being damages for loss of consortium, society, love, companionship and association her spouse was providing before the defendant’s unlawful malicious and illicit association with the plaintiff’s husband well knowing his marital status.
Sibindi is yet to respond to the lawsuit.
