A man found hiding under the bed by the husband of his lover claimed he was a carpenter fixing the bed.
But that did not wash and he was given a though hiding. He is now battling for life at Mpilo Central Hospital. Tatenda Madzivanyika (22) had told Mr Mandlenkosi Ndlovu that he was repairing the bed on the instruction of Mrs Ndlovu, Mandlenkosi’s wife.
Mrs Ndlovu bolted when her husband stormed into the room leaving her “worker” under the bed. The incident happened yesterday at 4344 Gwabalanda. Madzivanyika stays a stone’s throw away at Number 4309 in the same suburb. Neighbours said when Mr Ndlovu arrived home, he found the door locked but suspected his wife was inside.
After knocking for some time he took his tool box which was in another room and tried to open the door.“That is when the wife opened the door and ran away. We do not know where she went. Mr Ndlovu went in and found Tatenda under the bed. When he was asked what he was doing, he said he was repairing the bed.
Mr Ndlovu did not buy the story and he took a metal bar which was in the tool box and started attacking Tatenda,” said a neighbour who refused to be named.
