Husband Snatcher Ordered To Pay US$3 000 Damages

A Mutare woman has been ordered to pay US$3 000 as damages to her lover’s wife after cohabiting with a married man.

This comes after Ngaatendwe Matanda approached the Mutare Civil Courts seeking US$6 000 as compensation from Auxilia Muriro earlier this year.

According to Manica Post, Muriro has been cohabiting with Washington Matanda who is married to Ngaatendwe Matanda.


Muriro and Washington Matanda have three children, although one of them is now late.


Ngaatendwe revealed that she has gone through a torrid time at the hands of her husband’s mistress, Muriro.

Ngaatendwe told the court that she once approached Muriro and advised her to stay away from her husband, all to no avail.


She said she said first got wind of the affair in 2010 but dismissed the reports as mere gossip.


Ngaatendwe said it was only in 2015 that she finally confirmed that her husband was having an affair with Muriro.
