No sex while your wife is studying, court tells husband

Harare – A Zimbabwean woman whose husband tried to stop her studying by demanding sex has managed to get a court protection order against him, the state-controlled Chronicle newspaper reported on Thursday.

\n

Winnet Mzila, who studies at Midlands State University, complained her husband fondled her whilst she was “trying to concentrate on [her] books”, the newspaper reported.

\n

Mzila told a court in the second city of Bulawayo: “When I’m trying to read, he tells me that I should have sex with him.”

\n

“When I tell him that I’m tired and want to do my assignments, he starts shouting and accusing me of having an affair,” she was quoted as saying.

\n

Midlands State University is a state-funded institution in the city of Gweru, 157km from Bulawayo.

\n

The Chronicle said Mzila produced a knobkerrie that her husband had allegedly broken on her in a fit of rage.

\n

Husband Bekimpilo Mzila said he loved his wife, but did not agree with her studying at the university.
