Church mate snatches wife
17 June 2016
AN AFRICAN Apostolic church cheating couple is reported to have dumped their families in Harare to stay in Domboshava.
Shadreck Bhikausi, 38, a preacher and businessman, reportedly snatched his fellow church member John Tikiâ€™s wife Veronica Tsvangirai leaving his pregnant wife Rutendo Buyandipo, 34, struggling to fend for their children in Waterfalls.
Shadreck and Veronicaâ€™s shenanigans came to light after love messages between the two were discovered in the latterâ€™s mobile phone.
John said the love affair has been going on since 2014.
Rutendo told H-Metro that Shadreck collected his belongings behind her back and left his worshipping gowns and worn out shoes.
â€œMy husband is no longer into Christian faith, akasiya magemenzi bedzi mumba and collected all his belongings leaving me starving,â€ said Rutendo.
â€œAs we speak I am staying with my younger sister and he never said anything against me and we never had a quarrel. He just abandoned the family just like that.
â€œVeronicaâ€™s husband is the one who discovered the love messages between my husband and his wife and we learnt that since 2014 the two were having an affair behind our backs.
â€œI have plans to apply for maintenance since I am failing to look after the four children alone, I have been married to my husband for 11 years only to be wrecked by a fellow church member.
â€œZvanyadzisa kukereke nekuti nyaya yacho yazara muvanhu,â€ said Rutendo.
John confirmed the story saying rumour is going round that the two love birds are having a â€˜honey moonâ€™ at Showground Business Centre in Domboshava.
â€œShadreck is my friend and to learn that he was cheating with my wife is a thorn in my fresh; he sold my trust, he killed my family and is unremorseful,â€ said John.
â€œI heard from rumours that Shadreck relocated to Domboshava where they are being spotted in each otherâ€™s arms but God knows and His eye is ever watching them.
â€œMy three kids with Veronica are longing to enjoy motherly love while she takes care of a man who is supposed to fend for his family too.
â€œI am hurt and considering what they have done before the congregation in faith I want to believe it was better for them to have not tested the love of God they are replacing with lust.
â€œVeronica has forgotten the vows she made before the minister of church when we tied the knot and has decided to paint the white gown she put on.
â€œI knew Shadreck from the time we were staying in Bulawayo and I helped him much as we shared food along with my family unaware that he was salivating to have sex with my wife.
â€œHe should come and we sit down for a way forward for the good of our children,â€ said John.
Contacted for comment Veronica denied cheating with Shadreck saying she only borrowed him money after John failed to support her.
â€œNhasi John zvamurwadza nekuti ndave kugara zvakanaka ndega, haazive size yebhurukwa kana dress randinopfeka,â€ said Veronica.
â€œI am not in love with Shadreck as alleged but he only helped me with US$200 to start my business after John was no longer supporting the family.
â€œI am still to pay Shadreck his money since I am failing to pay school fees for children.
â€œJohn confessed before church congregation that he engaged in adultery with several Zimbabwean women based in Botswana.
â€œNdakamuramba ini ndikamusiya; handichamuda kunyangwe takachata zvedu I have since approached my lawyer to apply for divorce.
â€œShadreck has been our family friend from the time we were in Bulawayo and after he phoned me he came and helped me with money.
â€œAs we speak I do not know where Shadreck is staying, I am not in love with him,â€ said Veronica.
Shadreck could not be reached for comment by the time of going to print.
