A Bulawayo man ran for his life buck naked when his cheating wife tried to stab him with a pair of scissors, the wife was reportedly angry at the husband for exposing her extra-marital affair with a workmate.
According to B-Metro Boniface Makoni of Killarney suburb was attacked by his wife Sarudzai Makoni with a pair scissors in the middle of the night before he ran for safety in full view of their 6-year-old daughter.
However, Sarudzai told the Bulawayo Civil Court that Boniface was the one who was abusive and often humiliated her in front of her bosses at work.
I have been married to Boniface Makoni since 2012 and in terms of the Marriages Act Chapter 5:11. My husband is very violent. He physically assaults me. He does all this in front of our six-year-old child and the abuse has left her traumatised.
We are currently on separation but he sends people to take pictures of the house where I am staying so that he can make duplicate keys and enter the house. I am afraid that he will harm me, as he is also making false accusations while calling me names and coming to my workplace to embarrass me in front of my bosses, Sarudzai told the court.
In response to the allegations, Mr Makoni opposed the protection order application claiming that Mrs Makoni wanted to kick him off their marital home for good.
Boniface who left the marital house soon after the incident told the court that Sarudzai took possession of their property and moved into their new house and was now denying him access.
During my absence, she took most of our matrimonial property and went to stay at our newly built house in Hopeville. She is denying me access to that house. In my opinion, the application seeks to restrict me from having access to the matrimonial property we acquired during the subsistence of our 13-year marriage, fumed Boniface.
Boniface narrated in detail how he caught Sarudzai in a compromising position with her boss on 30 June and how she tried to stab him in front of their daughter.
I am opposed to her application on the grounds that she is my wife. On 30 June 2020, after a tip-off, I found my wife Sarudzai Makoni parked in a secluded place in Glengarry suburb with Shingirai Nyamaropa with whom she is having a love affair. Unfortunately, Nyamaropa, who happens to be my wife’s supervisor at Trek Petroleum Service, sped off.
Contrary to her allegations that I am violent, a few days after I bust her with Nyamaropa on 7 July 2020 she is the one who tried to stab me with a pair of scissors.
While I was sleeping, she stormed into the bedroom holding a sharp pair of scissors intending to stab me. I held onto her hands and asked my daughter to call my neighbour. As she was trying to stab me, I ran out of the house stark naked with my daughter crying,” said Boniface.
Presiding magistrate Nomasiko Ndlovu ordered the couple to go for marriage counselling and return back to court on the 8th of January 2021.
