GUILTY: Bame Ponatshego

Bame Ponatshego whose panties were exhibited in court in a marriage wrecking case recently will have to pay P8000 or have her property auctioned to compensate the woman who accuses her of wrecking her marriage.
Bame,32, who is a teacher at Thobega Secondary School, was dragged before the Urban Customary Court by Maipelo Mothei, 28, for having an affair with her 30 year old husband Robert Mothei. Maipelo had in her suit demanded P85 000 from Bame saying her marriage to Robert had broken down irrevocably because of the adulterous affair.
Witnesses of the case told the court the tale of how Maipelo had twice caught Ponatshego in compromising situations with her husband.
On the first instance Maipelo found her alleged rival having a bath at their home. On the second occasion she found her husband and Bame locked in the bedroom. Her husband Robert, allegedly only opened after some time following intervention from a colleague and after getting a promise from Maipelo that his alleged lover would not be hurt.
Witnesses who testified for Maipelo gave evidence that seemed to support her allegations.
Bame only called her husband, Gaseitsiwe Ponatshego who told the court that his wife was not a cheat adding that he did not believe his wife could break anybody’s marriage as he trusted her. Bame had promised to call another witness and when she could not Deputy Court President Patricia Radipati was on Tuesday left with no option but to continue with the case and finish it.
“After weighing the evidence from both sides I find Maipelo’s story believable. None of the complainant’s witnesses gave contradictory statements especially when it came to the incident where she alleges she found her husband locked in their matrimonial bedroom with the woman from whom she wants compensation from”, Radipati said in her judgement.

IN HAPPIER TIMES: Maipelo and Robert on their wedding day

She also poured scorn on Gaseitsiwe’s evidence saying it did not sound true and coming from a reasonable husband.
“I think any husband would have acted differently especially when told that his wife had been caught in another man’s bedroom. The least he could have done is go to the scene than send a friend”, she said.
Meanwhile Radipati gave either party 30 days in which to appeal if they were not satisfied with her ruling.
Incidentally the P8000 compensation awarded to Maipelo is equivalent to eight herd of cattle which is the bride price in Mmakgodi where she comes from.
