Suspected Adulterer Dismises P 75, 000 suit
A 25- year- old Kasane woman who is being sued for an adulterous affair with a 72- year -old married man has threatened the scorned wife with a counter lawsuit.
Responding to lawyers summons to pay P75, 000.00 ((P40,00 for humiliation and P35, 00. 00 for loss of comfort and financial support) to her rival, whose home she allegedly wrecked, the unrepentant young hotel guest relations officer claimed that allegations that an ageing white married man fathered her baby were simply ludicrous.
“Ronald Blackbeard is a 72- year -old white man for God’s sake.Why would a young woman like myself grab an old man like him. I have no reason to steal an old man from another woman because honestly speaking, I can find a young man my age if I needed to,” said Modiri Monyaya, who further explained that the father of her child was a younger white man who lives in Namibia.
Describing how shocked she was when Blackbeard’s 42-year- old angry wife, Bontle, pounced on her at her workplace to confront her about the alleged affair with her husband, Monyaya said, “It was a totally nasty surprise because I don’t even know the man that well. And now that she has instructed her lawyers to demand P75 000 from me for something that I don’t even understand, I shall wait patiently for my name to be cleared in court, and then I shall take counter legal action against her.”
Meanwhile Bontle said she resorted to suing, after her 72-year-old husband of nine years moved out of their luxurious matrimonial home last year to a rented two- roomed house.
“We got married in 2003 and everything was going well until sometime last year when she came into our lives. When I complained about her, my husband went berserk and immediately rented a two-roomed house, which he shared with this woman.”
Matters however came to a head when Monyaya gave birth to a mixed race child amid rumours that Blackbeared was the father, revealed the woman who co-owns a hardware and building material store with her estranged husband.
“I tried persuading the young girl to distance herself from my husband but she wouldn’t listen. Instead, the more time my husband spent with her, the more my he became hostile and abusive towards me, but one day I found the two love cheats together at the rented house in Kazungula,” said Bontle who went on to accuse BlackBeared of stealing money and stock from the family business to prop up his mistress financially.
Attempts to get a comment from Blackbeard drew a blank as his phone went unanswered.
