A bed hopping Village Head with unquenchable appetite for the forbidden fruit was made to pay for his sins after he was caught pants down with his daughter-in-law in Nyamweda,  Mhondoro area.

Simon Chitauro(68) was later tried by a local chief who went on to strip him of his Village Head title, handing it over to an interim leader.

The case was presided by Chief Nyamweda whose real name is Claudious Mandaza on Saturday, 28 April.

Chief Nyamweda’s court heard how Headman Chitauro was found in an uncompromising position with his son’s wife, Sarudzai Ganyiwa(42).

Sarudzai, wife to Edmore Chitauro(48) commited suicide by taking a deadly pesticide immediately after she was caught in bed with her husband’s biological father.

She was last seen alive bolting towards a nearby bush nake_d as her husband’s father got up to dress in front of his shocked wife identified as Mai Charity Mudarikwa (62).

Headman Chitauro was found guilty at the chief’s court due to overwhelming evidence.

He was fined five beasts.
