Women fight over boyfriend
6 October 2017
A CITY woman claims she incurred a US$500 hospital bill after she was attacked by her boyfriend’s lover.
Sekai Musengi has since taken the matter to the Harare civil court in a bid to recover the money from Juliet Muneguma.
“Your Worship, l am claiming US$500 which l used for my medication following the injuries I sustained during our fight.
“We fought because she dated my boyfriend behind my back, prompting me to confront her.
“In return, she assaulted me and now I want my money despite the fact that she does not work,” she said.
In response, Muneguma said:
“I do not owe her any money.
“I do not know what this money she is claiming is for since we both got injured during the fight.”
“We were dating the same boyfriend at the same time so she does not have the right to claim that l took her boyfriend.
“I will not pay the US$500 unless she gives me receipts from the hospital.
“For the meantime, l do not have the money because I do not work.”
Magistrate Tatenda Sharon Chipanga ordered Muneguma to pay US$500 on or before October 31.
