MWENEZI - Notice Ndlovu, a driver at Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (Zesa) Rutenga branch, is living in fear after the husband of the woman he had an adulterous relationship with allegedly promised to shoot him, the Mwenezi Magistrates' Court heard.
Ndlovu admitted to having an affair with Sifasonge Muleya's wife.
He however dragged Muleya, an employee at Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), to the civil court seeking a protection order. He told the court that at one point in time, Muleya telephoned him swearing that he will shoot him dead for having an affair with his wife.
In his defence, Ndlovu pointed out that he fell in love with Muleya's wife because he was not aware that she was married to another man. Muleya, however, dismissed the claims arguing that Ndlovu knew very well that the woman in question was married to him.
Muleya told the court that the matter was still troubling him and he requested for the case to be postponed as he was due for a special assignment at his work place.
Magistrate Langton Ndokera took his time trying to counsel the two men before postponing the matter to a later date as per Muleya's request. The matter was due to be heard again by the time of going to print.
