NYANGA - A Nyanga married woman and her boyfriend were left shame-faced after being caught red-handed having quality time in her matrimonial bedroom last week.
Ivy Masamba, wife to Never Zimbiti who works at Troutbeck in Nyanga, and her boyfriend only identified as Gwenzi - a tout at Evergreen Bus Terminus in Rusape - were caught in Dombo, village 22 Makoni district.
The two lovebirds were caught and detained for hours by angry villagers who severely assaulted.
Witnesses said Masamba's mother-in-law visited her and Gwenzi later arrived and confidently proceeded to the kitchen without even bothering to greeting her.
A suspicious Gogo Zimbiti did not get a good answer when she asked about the stranger and she left but returned a few moments later to find her daughter-in-law being intimate with the stranger.
She then locked the door from outside and informed the whole village.
Zimbiti and his wife's parents were also called and they joined in assaulting the hapless woman and her lover. The lovebirds were locked in from Tuesday evening till Wednesday before police came to their rescue.
Efforts to get comments from Masamba and Gwenzi were fruitless and Zimbiti's number was unreachable by the time of going to the press.local
