A man from Gokwe had the most unromantic end to a bout of love-making with a married woman after he was attacked by a swarm of bees in the middle of a tryst in the bush.
After being stung multiple times, bees were reportedly left covering his entire private parts for about two days, a development that villagers suspect was a result of black magic.
According to reports of the incident which villagers from Kwaramba Village under Chief Nemangwe suspected were acts of juju, Jethro Maimba was stung while having sex with a married woman, Lizzie Maphosa, in the bush.
It is reported that Maimba met his fate after he had been warned by Maphosa’s husband Joseph Musariri several times to stop the illicit affair.
According to a source from the area the two — Maimba and Maphosa — were in the habit of indulging in bush sex.
On the day in question, it is alleged that while in the act a swarm of bees mercilessly attacked Maimba but spared Maphosa who managed to flee from the scene while leaving her “partner-in-crime” to face the consequences alone.
“Maimba was stung by bees all over his body while having sex with Musariri’s wife. He tried to run away but the bees just followed and kept stinging him. They were really aggressive. We suspected that the stinging was a result of juju after some of the bees were left covering his private parts for about two days,” said a source who requested anonymity.
It is suspected that Maphosa’s husband decided to cast a spell on his wife after he discovered that she was cheating on him with Maimba. The two lovebirds were also warned by Musariri to stop the affair but to no avail.
The bees which were alleged to have blanketed Maimba’s groin area for about two days reportedly disappeared after he (Maimba) enlisted the services of some elderly men from the village to talk to Maphosa’s husband.
“The bees only disappeared after Maimba asked for forgiveness from Musariri. This was also after he had promised to pay him two beasts. The two, however, agreed to later approach Chief Nemangwe’s traditional court so that they can solve their issue amicably,” added the source.
Contacted for comment, Chief Nemangwe could neither confirm nor deny the shocking incident.
“The matter has not yet been brought to my attention. Maybe the parties decided to solve it on their own. Matters of that nature are usually brought to my attention after the parties would have failed to agree on any terms or conditions,” said Chief Nemangwe.
