Woman Discovered Her Husband Is a Woman After 3 Years
A woman has been served the shock of her life after discovering the man she married is actually a woman who claims to be a tomboy. The bizarre case has left people in shock after a woman from Founders town unknowingly married another woman thinking she was a man.
In fact, she has slept with ‘him’ on numerous occasions but the woman, unknown to her, used a small pestle (mutswi) as ‘his’ manhood.
But three years into the marriage, Memory Danzi (34) of Founders town discovered that her partner was a woman recently after she noticed some blood stains on Clemence George Chibaya Chiwenga’s pants. The stains were said to be from her menstruation.
Baffled by the finding, she set up a trap in the bathroom, budged in as ‘he’ was busy scrubbing ‘his’ body and behold, the person she has been calling hubby was just a woman like her.
When Chiwenga realised that her lover had gone to make a police report, she vanished from the scene and was later arrested on Monday night after an ambush at a garage where she was hiding.
Following her arrest, police officers were in a quandary on whether to lock her up in female holding cells or to send him to male cells. At the police station, Chiwenga admitted that she was a woman, but due to circumstances surrounding the case the officers felt that if she was to be locked up with female inmates she might abuse them like what she allegedly did to the complainant.
Placing him in men’s cells was also tricky because although she behaves and wants to be a man, she is a woman. Chiwenga was later locked up alone in a secure office for the night.
“I fell in love with this ‘man’ in 2013, but I later went and stayed in Macheke. I came back to Mutare in 2015 and we reignited our romance. Before ‘he’ dated me, I only knew ‘him’ as a carpenter and ‘he’ used to repair my furniture. Then, ‘he’ had a wife and ‘he’ used to come to my house in the afternoon and went back to his wife in the evening. In August this year ‘he’ separated from his wife and came to stay with me at my house. ‘He’ told me that ‘he’ chased his wife away because she wanted to poison ‘him’.
“I was surprised one of the days when I told one of my children, Masset, to go and do our laundry. She went and did the laundry from a nearby stream. I did not know that Chiwenga’s pants were among the dirty clothes. As Masset did the laundry she noticed that the pants were stained with menstrual blood.”
“I located the pestle and hid it. We quarrelled over the pestle as I wanted to take it to the police and ‘he’ wanted to destroy it. I managed to hide it under the mattress. Every time we slept together I felt deep pain and I had difficulties in walking because of the pestle ‘he’ used. I later opened up to my relatives and told them everything. Right now I am having endless menstrual periods because of that pestle ‘he’ used.”
At the police station, Chiwenga denied ever using the pestle on the complainant. She said she used her fingers in making love and that the pestle allegations were being cooked up by Danzi in a bid to fix her for not giving her money.
The case goes to court soon in Zimbabwe.
