Marry Ngwenya recently told a magistrate court in Zimbabwe how her husband, Pastor Petros Tshuma of Zion Grace International had starved her of sex since 2010.

The woman who could not hide her feelings literally pleaded for sex in front of magistrate Ndumo Masuku.

She said, “I’m a human being. I don’t survive on Bible verses and I need my husband to sleep with me. Now I lead a pretentious life telling the women I lead that I’m enjoying my marriage while I’m sex starved,” the woman said amidst tears.

The husband while responding said, “I love my wife but I have a problem, when I engage in sex my stomach starts to twinge as a result I feel an intense pain and due to that I had to stop. It’s not true that I’m in love with other women. My wife saw text messages from the women who wanted counselling on their marriages, due to that she quickly concluded that I’m in love with them,” he said.

Magistrate Masuku in his judgment, ordered Tshuma to have sex with his wife and not to emotionally abuse her.
