A 37- year-old man Lloyd was recently divorced in Chief Bushu’s traditional court in Shamva after his wife Fortunate Mudavanhu told the court that his husband’s manhood was not functioning since December last year to date.
“I remember this problem started a long time back in 2017 I have been patient enough to handle it but now I can’t I remember last year December that is the last time he tried having sex but we failed since my husband’s manhood is not working at all.
“I can say even my husband here does not know what the problem is because he will be so high wanting to satisfy me but by the time, he will be ready from nowhere his manhood will just stop functioning.
“This other day he was ready to satisfy me sexually but he told me he wanted to go to the toilet first and I was ready for him too unfortunately when he come back he told me that his manhood was so weak and it cannot perform well in bed,” she said.
She went on to lament that apart from him starving her sexually there are other problems that are happening in their house.
“Chief I don’t think I will continue with this marriage because apart of this man starving me sexually, he has also married another wife behind my back and he has been lying to me all this while until I found out that he has been cheating on me.
“This problem he has I am beginning to think that it might be caused by that new wife of his because ever since we got married, I did not experience such so I am assuming that she might be causing havoc in our marriage.
“Since 2017 there is no peace in my home we have not been talking as husband and wife there was never a day, I remember us having a proper conversation,” she said.
The husband told the court that his wife is telling the court a lie since he does not have any problem of satisfying her in bed.
“I just want to tell the court that I love my wife and all these things she is saying against me are all lies because I remember I don’t have such problem in bed I think it happened once.
“My wife has a problem she does not want me to go to my second wife in Harare she feels jealous and if we have a problem, she goes straight to her parent’s house to report me without letting us talk first.
“I think my manhood is no longer functioning well maybe it is because of my age but I love my wife so much,” he said.
In his ruling,Chief Bushu said that he tried his best in convincing the wife to go back to his husband but she refused and she presented a divorce token.
