Matebeleland North Provincial Administrator, Lastiso Dlamini has been dragged by Siboniso Lesley Maseko the wife of the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) Brigadier–General Simo Maseko over allegations of an adulterous relationship with the army boss.
Mrs Maseko, through her lawyer, Godfrey Nyoni is seeking $500 000 as compensation for the alleged affair. In her court papers, Siboniso said:
On diverse occasions and at various places including but not limited to Dlamini’s place of residence, the defendant committed and still continues to commit adultery with my husband, Simo Maseko.
I have further demanded that the defendant desists from continuing with her adulterous affair with my husband. Despite such demands, the defendant has continued with her actions.
She claims that she suffered damages for continued disrespect, loss of comfort, society, companionship and services of her husband in the combined sum of $500 000 which she says Dlamini should pay with an interest of five percent from the date of issue of summons to the date of full payment.
Dlamini is yet to respond to the accusations.
