A Bulawayo man from Emganwini suburb became a butt of jokes after his estranged wife punched him all over the body while accusing him of cheating on her with a woman from the same suburb.
Nelva Dube (27) and her husband Ronald Mativenga (37) have been staying apart because Dube reportedly stumbled on WhatsApp messages that Mativenga allegedly exchanged with his girlfriend.
According to a source who is close to the pair, the now estranged couple tried everything possible to mend their relationship, but their efforts were abortive.
Seeing that things were not working between them, Nelva decided to return to stay with her parents and has been staying there for a couple of months, said a source close to the couple.
Last week on Thursday Nelva visited her husband and the two picked an argument over Mativenga’s alleged fling.
Emotions got the better of her, causing Nelva to punch her husband, said the source who witnessed the dramatic incident.
The marauding Nelva rained blows on her husband and he wailed for help while pinned to the ground, prompting neighbours to throng their matrimonial home.
Some of the neighbours poked fun at him after seeing jabs landing fast on him, said a source. One of the men who was part of the crowd came to his rescue when he grabbed the furious lady.
Mativenga, who was bleeding from the mouth, reported the matter at a police station leading to the arrest of Nelva. -ZimEye
