Anesu Mlambo could not hold his tears when his wife Moreblessing Bako (30) revealed that in court.
It is reported that the two had a misunderstanding after Bako came home late leading to Mlambo pummelling her.
Mlambo was charged with assault. However, the whole story took an interesting twist when his wife told him that she was a prostitute.
This did not go down well with Mlambo who cried in front of the magistrate saying his wife had turned into a curse instead of a blessing.
a�?My wife leaves our home and comes back as she pleases without informing me of where she would have gone to. It is the opposite of what I do, I always tell her where I would be going,a�? he said wiping away tears.
a�?We had a misunderstanding after she came home late which led me to punch her on Tuesday and I apologise for that,a�? he continued.
Mlambo also told the court that their sex life had turned sour as his wife always complained of fatigue.
a�?I suspected that something was going on in my marriage as my wife was no longer the person I knew,a�? said Mlambo.
Mlambo pleaded guilty to physical abuse before Bulawayo magistrate Franklin Mkhwananzi.
a�?What my husband does not understand is that I am hustling for money,a�? said Bako.
Mkhwananzi fined him $50 (or 20 days in prison). The fine is to be paid before November 30.
Prosecuting, Mclean Ndlovu said Mlambo assaulted his wife after accusing her of arriving late from the market.
The court heard that Bako was treated at the United Bulawayo Hospitals. A medical report was produced in court as evidence. acp11.
