A Kwekwe woman refused to sleep with her husband after he fathered a child with another woman.

Tawanda Majoni and Chiedza Juma have been married for 10 years and have no children together. When Juma found out that he had cheated and fathered a child, she took the tough decision to deny him conjugal rights. He flew into a rage and thrashed her.

“I could not afford to put my life at risk by sleeping with my husband when I knew he had indulged in unprotected sex with another woman. In this day of sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, I felt unsafe to sleep with him. He started beating me on several occasions and when I couldn’t take it anymore, I reported the matter to the police,” Juma told the court.

Majoni was sentenced to eight months in prison.
