‘US$2 000 for breaking my virginity’

Report by Hardlife Zuweni

CHIPINGE – Twenty-One year old Nomatter Mlambo from Chipinge is demanding $2 000 from her ex-employer and former lover as damages for seducing, impregnating her and failing to fulfill the promise of marriage.

chipinge-map-250Mlambo told the court that sometime in 2010 she was employed as a shop attendant at Dube’s shop in Chipinge’s Central Business District. The two allegedly fell in love the same year after Dube’s wife died.

She told the court that their love grew phenomenally that in February 2011, Dube made the trip to the Mlambos to seek Nomatter’s hand in marriage.

Mlambo alleges that on an unnamed date in March 2011, when she was about to close shop, Dube dashed in and slammed the door shut before seducing and bedding her, breaking her chastity in the process.

After she had fallen pregnant, Dube is said to have strengthened his relations with the Mlambos by signing papers promising to marry Nomatter once he had finished the traditional rites for his late wife. The signed papers were produced in court.

“Despite numerous calls by my parents to take me to his home, Dube continued playing hide and seek saying he had not finished the rites.

“In September 2012, I had complications when giving birth and had to be ferried to a Mutare hospital where I was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit for four days after undergoing an operation. The child, however, died and was buried by Dube in my absence,” she said.

Mlambo told the court that Dube became “slippery” after her stillbirth and has since married another woman.

“Your worship, that man broke my virginity. He wasted my time, he impregnated me and dumped me and now I have become a laughing stock for all and sundry.

“My body is permanently damaged and I was ordered to do physiotherapy exercises for it to recuperate,” Mlambo told the court.

“$600 is for deflowering me, $400 is for wasting my time, I want another $600 because I am no longer attractive and men resent me and $400 for physiotherapy costs,” she added.

However, Dube said Mlambo’s claims were ridiculous because she was not a virgin when he met her.

“She was never a virgin as she claims. I did not see any blood after the act as she claims, neither did I have any problems with penetration and I never promised to marry her,” Dube said.

Chipinge magistrate, Mr Vuso Gapare presided over the matter, which was adjourned to February 8, when Dube’s lawyer, Mr Langton Mhungu and the applicant are expected to give their closing submissions.

    This is such a sad story. I did not know that we still had such man in this generation. Virgin or not this Guy must even pay more money. What the girl went through is painful enough. Women were never created as our objects to use and dump like condoms. They are like us man. They have feelings like us though they are stronger. To fall unloved is a courtesy by her that we as man should appreciate and cherish. They are our flowers, we need to care for them and appreciate their role in society. This dude will go to hell.

    PM vakatitangira zvimwe. After Locardia’s case we have seen a wave of sick-minded gold-digging women out to make a quick buck. This is just one of those numerous failed relationships so she should not cry. She was into it voluntarily and should have know that everything that has a beginning has an ending. Remember the Gweru hallot seeking cash the same way after Locardia

  • Shame on u my dear

    this is bad really. In as much as we most women are of the weaker sex, this guy must acknowledge his bad actions. the money she is requesting does not even come close to what she went thru. At least this man must show that he is still human and pay up even more just to say sorry althoug nothing will ever be the same again for this girl. i feel so pity for her.
