In a dramatic turn of events, a man from Masvingo found himself in police custody after he caught his wife having sex with a police officer.
Mangarai Mashindi (55) of Pangolin high-density suburb was arrested for disorderly conduct after he had a scuffle with Constable Sydney Chembonje (41) whom he found having sex with his wife Mavis Mashindi (35) in their matrimonial bed.
According to a leaked police memo, on the night of 1 July at around 20:30 hours, Mashindi arrived home without notifying his wife that he was coming.
He entered the couple’s two-roomed house and opened the bedroom door where he discovered Chembonje and his wife having sex.
When Chembonje noticed the presence of Mashindi, he bolted from the room, naked, but Mashindi managed to manhandle him and the two started fighting.
The police officer overpowered Mashindi and he escaped still naked.
