ZANU PF POLITICIAN CAUGHT UP IN ADULTERY STORM | An aspiring Zanu PF councillor is nursing injuries following a beating after being caught in a compromising position with a married woman.
Sources told NewsAnchor that Justin Chimuzinga was recently fined $700 by a traditional court after confessing to committing adultery with Willard Magora’s wife, whose name this publication could not obtain at the time of writing. He was busted at a love nest.
Magora confirmed the incident, saying concerned residents tipped him of the illicit affair and he instituted personal investigations to verify the “allegations”.
On the day in question, Magora’s wife phoned her husband, who was in Harare, to ask whether he was returning to Banket that day, but Magora misrepresented that he would not be coming home as he still had outstanding business in the capital.
It is alleged at dusk, Magora’s wife then left their matrimonial home in Banket after lying to her neighbours that she was going to attend an all-night prayer meeting at the Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) Living To Praise assembly church in Kuwadzana, but proceeded to Chimuzinga’s house in the same township.
During the same night, Magora drove to Banket and did not find his wife at home. Neighbours told him his wife had gone to church, prompting Magora to hunt her down.
But to Magora’s surprise there was no all-night prayer at the said church, further raising his suspicion.
Magora, who was being tipped off, then budged into Chimuzinga’s residence, where he found the lovebirds inside, leading to mayhem.
An irate Magora reportedly bashed the adulterous pair before bundling them into his car and driving them to AFM pastor Reverend Devera’s house, where he narrated the story.
Magora later drove the two to his house, where he further meted instant justice, but his wife managed to escape.
Following the thorough bashing of the pair, Magora proceeded to Banket police, where he told authorities what he had done and was advised to release Chimuzinga, whom he had locked in his house.
He was warned that his actions amounted to kidnapping.
It is said Chimuzinga’s son, in the company of the accused’s friend, reported a case of kidnapping, but reportedly bolted out of the Charge Office after learning that Magora had been there earlier.
Magora’s wife, with a swollen face, also lodged an assault report with the police.
The matter was taken to the traditional court, where Chimuzinga admitted to having an adulterous relationship with the married woman, but defended himself saying his lover had lied to him that the couple was on separation.
Chief Chidziva fined Chimuzinga $700 after finding him guilty of the offence and bemoaned the high rate of divorces due to infidelity.
Ironically, Chimuzinga divorced his wife earlier this year on allegations of promiscuity.
He vowed to appeal against both conviction and sentence.
