To avoid having sex with her husband, a Zimbabwean woman reportedly faked her menstrual cycle all the time.
The magistrate court, according to H-metro, had initially slapped Vakai with a seven months jail term of which five months were removed on good behaviour and the other months were commuted to
doing unpaid work.
During mitigation, Vakai told the court that though he assaulted his wife Beauty Pedzisai, she had lied to the police.
“We had a misunderstanding and I assaulted her but she exaggerated the seriousness of the assault. She is a good liar, even at home she lies a lot. Whenever she doesn’t want to have sex with me she lies that she is on her menstrual period,” said Vakai.Circumstances surrounding the matter are that on November 27 at around 7pm, Vakai was looking for his laptop at the matrimonial home. He then asked his wife Beauty if she had come across the laptop and she denied seeing it.
At around 9pm the same night, Vakai found his laptop inside the wardrobe.
He then started accusing Beauty of being the one who had his laptop alleging that where he finally found it, he had searched for it there before.
Beauty then lodged a complaint with the police and Vakai was arrested.
