Chitungwiza Woman ARRESTED For Getting Impregnated By Another Man While Married

In what appears to be an unusual case, a married woman from Chitungwiza who was allegedly cheating on her husband was arrested after she was allegedly impregnated by another man.

The woman, Thelma Anna Guvakumwe, 29, has since been charged with Bigamy after she was allegedly impregnated outside of marriage.

Under Zimbabwe law, Bigamy refers to a situation whereby a person who is lawfully married under the law contracts another marriage with someone else without terminating the first marriage.

 

 

Bigamy is a criminal offence in terms of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act, and Guvakumwe faces a fine or imprisonment of up to one year.

According to lifestyle tabloid H-Metro, Guvakumwe was arrested after her legal husband, 53-year-old Cloudio Jume, from Granary, filed charges against her after she gave birth to a baby girl.

She is also facing charges of perjury after she allegedly lied under oath that she was no longer married to Jume.

She allegedly filed the false affidavit at the Harare Magistrates’ Court.

Guvakumwe appeared before magistrate Minel Narotam. She was not asked to plea.

The court heard that Guvakumwe entered into a new marriage with Elton Sanyamahwe, despite being married to Jume.

She later gave birth to a baby girl after being impregnated by her new husband.

The child’s birth record was attached to the docket as evidence.

The case is still ongoing.

The circumstances surrounding the status of Jume and Guvakumwe’s relationship status were not revealed although the two appear to have been estranged and living separately.
