A 48-year-old woman has dragged her husband, 56, before a court in Zimbabwe over his deliberate refusal to perform his sexual duties. The woman, Simangaliso Muringi also accused the man of abusing her physically and verbally before their three children and neighbours. The man, Charles Ndadambi Muringi, who has been married to his wife for 24 years, said he decided to stop having sex with her for twelve years because she was a drunkard and also abuses him verbally. He also accused her of bringing male friends into their home.
The judge, Evelyn Mashavakure, ordered the man to desist from abusing his wife and referred them for counselling.
