A housewife has refused to continue in a sexless marriage because her husband who spent six years in prison can no longer meet his marital obligation in bed.
Our sources reported that a se_xually starved Elestnea Mwanza (33) complained in the Local Court that she has not been able to enjoy her conjugal rights for two years because her husband Christopher Zulu, 35, no longer performs se_xually.
Mwanza was narrating before magistrate Emmanuel Mumba in a case in which she sued Zulu for divorce. The couple has three children together.
“Before he went to prison, my husband was fine but since his release, he has not been able to perform se_xually. For two years since his release, I have not been able to enjoy my conjugal rights. He has never touched me for the past two years. I did not wish to end this marriage but I cannot continue in this situation. I am still young,” she said.
She complained that it is unfair for her to have waited for her husband for six years only for her to continue being se_xually starved even after his release from prison.
But Zulu who did not dispute Mwanza’s allegations admitted that he has a problem with his manhood; a situation he said has been preventing him from fulfilling his marital obligations in bed.
“Despite the problem I have, I still love her and I am not willing to divorce her because I love her,” he said.
The court granted divorce noting it would be unfair for Mwanza to continue in a se_xless marriage as she may be tempted to commit adultery to satisfy herself.
Zulu was ordered to pay Mwanza ZAR4,000 as compensation in ZAR200 monthly instalments. The court also reprimanded Zulu for not honest with his wife about his problem after his release from prison.
