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 husbanda��s son Nhlalwenhle Ngulube from having access to his fathera��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:

a�?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 fathera��s house,a�? she said.

Nhlalwenhle disputed his stepmothera��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.

a�?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,a�? the source said.
