Man Kills Himself Over Wife’s Infidelity
A Buhera man is alleged to have ended his life soon after a marital dispute with his wife. According to reports reaching iHarare from the Masvingo Mirror, the now deceased, a teacher at Gunura Secondary school died after drinking rat poison. This follows after he discovered that his wife was having an illicit affair with another man which resulted in a pregnancy. To add salt to his injury, his wife, at the time he made the discovery, told him that he had failed to satisfy her sexual appetites during the course of their marriage. She also added that her lover did a far better job in pleasuring her than he did.
In a suicide note that the teacher left behind, he revealed that he was forced to commit suicide by his wife’s infidelity and her scathing comments of his bedroom skills. He also instructed his relatives to ensure that his cheating wife and her three-week-old baby leave his homestead or risk being haunted by his spirit.
Buhera District Schools Inspector (DSI) Godfrey Chimbwanda confirmed the tragic incident but professed ignorance on the reasons for the suicide.
‘I received a report of a teacher who committed suicide by drinking rat poison. I however, am not aware of the reasons for the act,’said Chimbwanda.
Sources who spoke to the publication on condition of anonymity revealed that at the time of the incident, the now-deceased was on leave at his home at Ngaone in Chipinge. He is alleged to have had a heated argument with his wife on Monday last week. After the argument, he left home only to return on Tuesday at around 3 am. He tried to sleep but was restless as he had drunk rat poison.
His child saw him with froth coming out of his mouth and called his wife who then called neighbours and he was ferried to Chipinge Hospital where he died the same day>chaosafrica
