A heart broken woman is seeking redress in court for being left pregnant and heart-broken by her ex ex-fiancé who is now pitching his tents with another woman, the Observer reported.
According to court papers filed at the Bulawayo High Court this week, Chido Fortune Mutonhori of Shurugwi is the plaintiff while her ex-lover, Tafadzwa Hwehwe was cited as the defendant in the matter.
Mutonhori, through her lawyers, Dube, Mguni and Dube Legal Practitioners, said she felt embarrassed and humiliated after Hwehwe broke her virginity and impregnated her before breaching a promise he made to marry her.
“After deflowering and impregnating me, Hwehwe has taken away my pride as a woman and left me embarrassed and humiliated before my own people, the community of Shurugwi, my peers and the entire Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church in Shurugwi. In breach of the agreement, defendant has failed and or neglected to marry me after seducing me for 15 months resulting in me getting pregnant,” said Mutonhori.
She said she was engaged to Hwehwe in May 2013 through the facilitation of the Shurugwi Seventh Day Adventist church elders. Mutonhori said contemplating marriage, she then moved in with Hwehwe in January 2014.
“Plaintiff was accepted as a daughter-in-law by defendant’s parents. Mutonhori subsequently relocated to Harare to stay at Hwehwe’s parents’ house in Belvedere while defendant remained in Shurugwi managing family businesses,” said Mutonhori’s lawyers.
“Defendant would visit me in Harare during which we would have sexual intercourse and I’m now pregnant and expecting his baby. However, in March 2015, I discovered that Hwehwe has been associating with another woman called Theresa Sibanda to an extent of fathering a child with her and they’ve since moved in together with the blessings of his parents and I was ordered to return to my people”.
Mutonhori, in her summons, said her ex-lover has through his actions reduced her prospects of having a “normal” future marriage and she is now demanding a total of $15 000 in damages.
“Wherefore plaintiff prays for payment of $10 000 in seduction damages for the period between January 2013 and March 2014 when Mutonhori stayed with Hwehwe in contemplation of marriage and impregnating her. Plaintiff claims payment of $5 000 in damages for breach of promise to marry her and the cost of suit on a higher scale,” reads part of Mutonhori’s papers.
Hwehwe has not yet filed a notice of entry of appearance to defend the summons.
