All is not well for Mberengwa North Member of Parliament Mr. Tafanana Zhou who is being sued for $30 000 by a local woman whom he allegedly dumped after breaking her virginity.

Dumped Ms Henrietta Tafadzwa Chauke, through her lawyers Mugiya and Macharaga Law Chambers, filed summons at the Bulawayo High Court citing Mr Zhou as a defendant. 

In papers before the court, Ms. Chauke said she lost her virginity to Mr. Zhou after he allegedly gave her a false impression that he would marry her.

“The defendant also introduced me to some of his relatives and we had sexual intercourse which was premised on prospects for an imminent marriage. At the time of the sexual intercourse with the defendant, I was a virgin and I fell at the instance of his solicitation and promise to marry me,” she said.

Ms. Chauke said Mr. Zhou terminated their relationship in February this year for no apparent reason, consequently violating his promise to marry her.

“As a result of the breach of the promise to marry and the defendant’s conduct thereof, the plaintiff suffered and still suffers from hurt and her feelings remain injured. My chances of marriage have severely diminished due to the loss of my virginity,” she said.

She wants an order compelling the MP to pay $30 000 for contumelia arising from the breach of promise to marry.
