Sources say the two began the adulterous affair last year when Mutepfa’s wife Excellent Mutepfa who is a student at Morgenster Teachers College was doing attachment at Fusira Primary School under Chief Nyajena area.
The matter is believed to have come out when Excellent went for sporting activities and claimed that he had been given transport money by her husband’s young brother.

The unfortunate part is my husband wanted to send me to college but now he is saying all women who goes to college do likewise. I’m hurt because I was supposed to be at school now but my hopes have been shattered because of her,” said one lady on social media
