Queens Park Man Breaks Free from Abusive Relationship, Discovers Love in Maid’s Arms

A Queens Park Suburb man in Bulawayo dumped wife for maid, for allegedly beating and insulting him for failing to secure a job. Timothy Dube revealed that after he lost his job, his wife, who is gainfully employed, shouldered the home needs, including paying all bills and the maid’s wage.

Verbal and Physical Abuse by Wife

He said that despite her contribution, his wife would verbally abuse him in front of their children. She would beat and insulting him whenever they argued. He applied for a protection order against his wife at Bulawayo’s Tredgold Courts, reported bmetro.

“I’m applying for a protection order against my wife Selma Sibanda. Whenever we are involved in an argument she beats me and insults me in front of our children. She brands me a useless man forgetting that I’m the one who paid for her secondary and tertiary education to help her attain the qualifications she has. I hope this court will grant me a protection order,” he said.

Reciprocal Order Granted

During the hearing, Selma claimed that Timothy was in love with their maid, which led to heated arguments.

“He was in love with our maid and we fought over that. Time after time we are involved in heated arguments which spiral into fights”

However, Timothy maintained that he could no longer stand the physical and verbal abuse. He wants to sell their house and share the money.

The magistrate, Makelo Ncube, granted the couple a reciprocal order. He instructed them to live peacefully with each other and not to physically and verbally abuse each other. They were also ordered to go for counseling and return to the court after a month.
