Were you aware that according to rulings made by the Magistrate’s Court and the High Court of Zimbabwe, a husband has the permission to request for a full refund of his lobola if his wife cheats on him?

A ruling that happened in 2016 by Justice Hlekani Mwayera and Justice Tendai Uchena confirmed this.

In the case, Liberty Machado found out that his wife had cheated on him on many occasions with multiple people including his elder and younger brothers, a nephew and a herd boy. After learning of this painful betrayal and breach of the marriage contract, Machado sent his wife packing and divorced her.

During the trial at the Magistrate’s Court, it was stated that the adulterous affairs came to light after the couple’s newborn baby denied to breastfeed. Both Machado and his ex-wife explained to the court that the baby only began breastfeeding after the mother had made a full confession of her adulterous shenanigans.
