Man Defies Family, Wants Wife’s Mother As Second Wife

A Zvishavane man Vashko Sande has shocked people after marrying his own mother in-law as a second wife whom he dated secretly for 7 years, says he is his own father-in-law.

Vashko Sande did the unthinkable when he fell in love with
his mother-in-law, betraying his wife’s trust.

He reportedly became wild and abusive after finding new love
and even elders failed to “discipline” him as he defied social norms and
married the woman as his second wife.

The wife, Vimbai Magora, failed to come to terms with her
husband’s abusive behaviour forcing her to seek help from the long arm of the
law.

Magora in her application for a peace order said: “We got
married in 2008 and since 2011 my husband became hostile as he had fallen in
love with my mother.He started beating and insulting me, threatening to chase
me and my four children out of our matrimonial home.”

She further revealed that even family elders failed to
resolve their problem as he never listened to their advice, but continued in
the relationship with his mother-in-law putting their marriage on the rocks.

In response, Sande confirmed the allegations levelled against
him saying he loved the two women and wanted to spend his life with them.

“It is true that I am in love with her mother, but I still
love my wife as well. Therefore, I would like to spend all my life with them,”
said Sande.

Zvishavane
magistrate Shepherd Mjanja granted the peace order in favour of Magora. Sande
was ordered not to physically and emotionally abuse his first wife.
