“He only came back in March this year. I refused to accept him back, but he came with his relatives including his mother who cried as she begged me to change my decision.
“I then asked whether the problem that led to our separation had been solved. He lied to me that it had been solved.
“I accepted him back. However, from March to April he could not do anything in bed. I complained to my sisters that nothing had changed. He still has the problem that led to our separation.

“Things got so confusing when he said he had sought help from spiritualists and he was told that my aunt had caused that problem.
“I asked for some time to be alone. I told him I wanted to be away from him for while. He refused. He said he could not bear the thought of seeing me with another man, let alone seeing her married to another man,” she said.
The perpertrator, Moses Marote is still sending Masango messages blaming her for his actions Masango said her husband suggested giving her his young brother as husband as a way of keeping her in their family.
“He told me that I could have his young brother in bed and remain as part of their family. I refused to be part of that arrangement. Apart from the fact that I did not love his young brother, I also did not know how his young brother separated with his wife.
“Last Wednesday my mother visited us and attempted to counsel us. We agreed that we would wait for his mother the next day. I watched TV until around 10pm when I retired to bed. I woke up the next morning at around 5am. I sent a text message to his mother informing her that we are waiting for her."
