Siphathisiwe Tshuma
THREE-time ex-wife and now widow Constance Ngulube (61) was humbled by the courts when she attempted to restrict her last and late husband’s son Nhlalwenhle Ngulube from having access to his father’s house.

Constance was married to Phio Mahlanza Ngulube who at the time of his death was a lecturer at the University of Science and Technology (Nust).

Pleading her case to the court, an emotional Constance said:

“I want him arrested because I am afraid he can do just about anything. Last week he stormed into the house dead drunk, shouting and pointing at me demanding that I give him the keys to his father’s house,” she said.

Nhlalwenhle disputed his stepmother’s claims and magistrate Sithembiso Ncube threw out the case citing a lack of irrevocable evidence.

Meanwhile, last year, she took her late husband to court citing abuse and the matter was thrown out.

A close family source, speaking to B-Metro outside the court said Constance was a desperate chancer.

“She has been divorced by three different men. This was her fourth marriage and she was having problems with Ngulube, resulting in her being quietly excluded from the will,” the source said.
