When a Zimbabwean pastor’s wife came in court to accuse her husband Petros Tshuma, a pastor with Zion Grace International, of starving her for the last seven years, she couldn’t contain her emotions.
nstead, she says he sleeps with other women from his congregation.
“Your worship, I’m s3xua.lly abused by this man as he last had s3x with me in 2010. If I ask him about the issue he would promise to make up for it but when it’s time for s3x he simulates sickness then claims to be feeling pain in his stomach,” she said.
Mary Ngwenya added that her husband would also claim his testicles were swollen but had other partners to sleep with as she literally pleaded for s3x in front of the magistrate.
“What I know is that he enjoys s3x with three ladies from our church. I have WhasApp text messages to prove that.
I’m a human being. I don’t survive on Bible verses and I need my husband to sleep with me. Now I lead a pretentious life telling the women I lead that I’m enjoying my marriage while I’m s3x starved,” she said in between sobs.
However, Tshuma admitted the blame.
“I love my wife but I have a problem, when I engage in s3x my stomach starts to twinge as a result I feel an intense pain and due tothat I had to stop. It’s not true that I’m in love with other women. My wife saw text messages from the women who wanted counselling on their marriages, due to that she quickly concluded that I’m in love with them,” he said.
The judge Masuku ordered Tshuma to have s3x with his wife and not to emotionally abuse her.
