PRESSURE continues to mount on a ‘sex pest’ nurse at Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo after his married ex-lover slapped him with a $300 000 defamation lawsuit over claims that suggested she was a “love-obsessed stalker” who had turned his life into a nightmare by constantly pestering him at his workplace.
Wushe Marime’s latest blow came hardly a few months after his ex-lover Judy Ntombentsha Takanai’s husband slapped him with a US$10 000 adultery lawsuit in March this year.
In the adultery suit Judy’s husband claimed Marime allegedly engaged in an extra marital affair with his wife and pressured her to kill him so as to sustain the adulterous relationship.
Marime, from Tshabalala suburb, allegedly told Judy to kill her husband so that he could remain the only man in her life.
In the latest suit filed under case number 2199/19 at the Bulawayo Civil Court, Judy, who is demanding $300 000, also claimed she no longer had joy in her marriage because of Marime’s “uncouth” actions.
Judy sued her ex-lover for defaming her character after a reciprocal order was granted between them in a case in which she had sued him for disturbing her peace.
The accusations were, supposedly, a calculated act of revenge against Judy for terminating their adulterous relationship after her husband discovered it.
“The defendant has defamed my character, made false allegations against me, causing me loss of productive working time attending courts.
(I) am now having health problems because (I) am emotionally stressed by his actions. I also have no peace and joy in my marriage and life as I am now only focusing on his actions,” reads the suit.
Marime was given seven days to respond to the claim.
The demand came after Bulawayo magistrate Rachael Mukanga granted a reciprocal order which compels Judy and Marime not to verbally abuse or threaten each other in any way as well as not to visit each other’s workplace and residence. This was after Judy claimed Marime was making a string of false allegations against her including that she was always stalking him at his workplace.
“We were in an illicit affair and terminated it after my husband discovered it. This was also after he had suggested that we should kill him (husband) claiming he was a stumbling block to our relationship.
“He is making false allegations against me that I disturb his peace by going to his workplace and residence. The allegations are causing emotional distress to me,” she said.
She further claimed as a result of those false allegations she was no longer visiting her sick relatives, friends and neighbours admitted to Mpilo Hospital or seeking treatment as Marime claims she will be spying or stalking him.
In response Marime who was being represented by his lawyer did not refute Judy’s accusations before he requested a reciprocal order saying Judy was also harassing him.
