A 31-year-old man has accused his ex-wife of bewitching him and paralyzing him after he divorced her earlier this year.
The two had been living as husband and wife for just over a year before the 31-year-old man from Epworth decided to call it quits.
The man who is only identified as Emmanuel is reported to have force-fed his lover Ellina Muvuti piping hot meat and sadza before punching her with clenched fists.
Emmanuel told H-Metro he met Muvuti through WhatsApp. He says Muvuti was looking for someone to please her in bed.
He told the publication Muvuti bewitched him after he decided to leave her because he had lost affection for her.
WhatsApp ndiyo yakandisanganisa nagogo ava pandakazovawona takawirirana kugara tese sezvo vanga vachida murume. I decided to separate with her in January this year after losing affection and she bewitched me and I became paralyzed.
Muvuti denied Emmanuel’s allegations claiming he is physically abusive and the neighbors had witnessed the incidents before he became paralyzed.
She said she decided to get him arrested after she got fed up with the abuse. Muvuti explained:
Emmanuel murume wangu wandagara naye nguva inodarika gore asi nyaya yekundirova ndanga ndanzwa saka ndazomusungisa.
Our neighbours witnessed many occasions when he assaulted me under the influence of dagga. “I do not know any of his relatives except one he used to call who stays in Norton. I have been providing food and clothes for him but I am tired.
“Andipakira sadza nenyama zvinopisa mukanwa achinditi zvekudya zvako ndizvo zvawava kundiroyera. After forcing me to swallow the hot food, he punched me several times with clenched fists that is why I took the matter to the police. If there are any of his relatives I want them to come and collect his belongings from my house.
Muvuti said Emmanuel threatened to kill her because she had bewitched him.
