A magistrate’s court at Mwenezi, Masvingo Province, was on Thursday forced to adjourn after an Agritex officer’s wife wailed in court.
According to Masvingo Mirror, Siphelile Maroyi, the sex-starved wife to Rindai Tsvairai, told the court that she last made love to her husband three years ago.
Maroyi wailed in the middle of a civil matter after declaring that her husband was lying that he still loves her.

She said that her husband’s love went cold three years ago and since then she never bedded him.
Maroyi said Tsvairai had since married another wife and stopped caring for his children.
Mwenezi Resident Magistrate Honesty Musiiwa stopped the proceedings and only resumed the hearing when Maroyi had regained her composure.
Maroyi had approached the court for a protection order which she was granted.
She accused her husband of domestic violence and said that he recently came to the company house which they used to stay at Neshuro in the company of his niece to collect a refrigerator, sofas and other goods.
The wife told the court that they had 115 herds of cattle they had accumulated together but Tsvairai flatly refused and said only 15 cattle are in their stock card.
Tsvairai said his wife refused to go and stay at their rural home after they left the company house.
