Man dumps wife for refusing to sell one of their female triplets

A  30-year-old woman from Marange, Manicaland Province,

has said that she was dumped by her husband for refusing to

sell one of their triplets while in South Africa last year.

Narrating her ordeal, Olinda Maposa disclosed that her husband

was not pleased after she gave birth to triplets.

Maposa said after she shot down her husband, Obey Mucheki’s

proposal of selling one of the triplets because they are all girls,

he gave her five days to vacate their home and threatened

to kill her or her babies.


She said:
“I gave birth to my three children that are Rukudzo, Rujeko and

Runako, but my husband, Obey Mucheki, proposed to sell one girl

in protest that all the children are girls. When I shot down the proposal,

he then gave me five days to vacate our home, threatening to kill me or the baby.”

She was left to fend for the triplets as well as their 11-year old child,

Ruvimbo, on her own. Maposa, however, received assistance from

Zimbabwe’s Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services,

Senator Monica Mutsvangwa when she attended the ZANU PF Women’s League

inter-district meeting in Marange on Saturday, May 15.

She said:

“After having faced a lot of challenges since I gave birth to my triplets,

I am happy that I got help from Mai Mutsvangwa. I am highly delighted

as I was facing difficulties in taking care of the three girls.”

Senator Mutsvangwa pledged to assist with groceries and basic provisions

every month. The Minister said: “Mai Maposa gave birth in South Africa.

We are going to assist her. The woman came with her children all the

way from South Africa after she was not well-received by her

husband for giving birth to triplets.

“As a women’s league we should bring to the fore such need cases.

As the local senator, I will give the family food every month. We will look

for sponsors, even approaching the First Lady so that the three girls

get support and are able to go to school.”
