AA� Bulawayo man regrets the day he laid eyes on his business partnera��s wife as his colleague beats him up each time they meet alleging that hea��s having an affair with her.

The reason being that they always happen to be online on WhatsApp at the same time.

Edson Sibanda approached the Bulawayo magistrates court seeking a peace order against Peter Keirnim because he couldna��t take anymore beatings.

a�?Your worship, he once assaulted me in front of my workmates and the matter was reported to the police. He told the police that I was having an affair with his wife. When they asked him why he thought so he told them that Ia��m always chatting with her on WhatsApp,a�? said Sibanda.

In his defence Keirnim told the court that he does not like Sibanda because he once had an affair with his wife and almost broke his marriage.

a�?Your worship, I dona��t trust Sibanda because he once had an affair with my wife to an extent that they kissed and he still sends messages to my wife so that doesna��t make me happy,a�? said Keirnim.

He said he once tried to talk to Sibanda about the issue but instead of apologising Sibanda said Keirnima��s wife seduced him.

a�?I saw messages in my wifea��s phone and the two were having an affair but he made a fool of me when I confronted him saying my wife was the one throwing herself at him when I knew very well that he was after my wife too,a�? added Keirnim.

Keirnim said Sibanda was also their churchmate and was once summoned at their church and warned to stop the affair.

a�?Everyone at church could see that they were having an affair because of the way they behaved around each other in church and the pastor spoke to them about it. I even left the church and joined another one because of that,a�? he added.

The magistrate, Sheunesu Matova, granted a binding over order to keep peace between the two.

a�?Parties shall not be violent towards one another and not conduct themselves in a manner which is likely to provoke the other and the two of you should stay away from each othera��s workplaces,a�? said Matova.
