A Bulawayo married woman has confessed before a court judge that she locked her bedroom door to have quality time with a young student from NUST while her children played outside.

Her husband has since appeared in court for assaulting a National University of Science and Technology (NUST) student after he found him bedding his wife in his house.

 Mandlenkosi Ndlovu (36) of Gwabalanda suburb pleaded guilty to assaulting his neighbour, Tatenda Stanley Dzira (22), when he appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Ms Tancy Dube.

However, in a statement Ms Sibanda said she had se_x with the NUST student.

“I beat him up your Worship. I admit. I was angry. I found him hiding under my bed, in my bedroom. He failed to give a good explanation of what he was doing in my bedroom, under my bed,” said Ndlovu.

Ndlovu’s wife admitted that she and Dzira were lovers.

“The complainant came to my home and Iocked the door from inside so that we could have se_x without disturbances from my children who were playing outside. Shortly thereafter, my husband arrived and my children shouted, “uDaddy usemnyango”(father is at the door) and I swiftly lifted the bed to allow Dzira to hide. I opened the door and my husband asked why I had locked the door,” she said.

Ndlovu allegedly wanted to collect his hammer from under the bed and that is when he stumbled on Dzira.

He started striking him with a metal pipe before the student managed to escape.

Sibanda fled and sought refuge at her sister’s house.

A medical report produced in court stated that Dzira sustained external and internal injuries that could possibly lead to bleeding in his brain.

The case continues.
