AN Old LOBENGULA couple has become the talk of the high-density suburb in Bulawayo, after they mysteriously got stuck to each other while being intimate at their rented home.
What seemed like a routine encounter between Cain Chitambuze (24) and his wife Vongai Nhopi (19) turned into a nightmare when they endured nine hours of humiliation and had to be rescued by Chitambuze’s father.
“Vongai says she began screaming for help around 1am, but strangely I did not hear any noises,” said the couple’s landlady Gogo MaSibanda.
She said she only heard the couple’s calls in the morning and that is when she alerted neighbours.
“The word quickly spread across the neighbourhood and in no time people thronged my house to see the couple.”
She said she had never come across a situation where a married couple experienced such a thing.
“A scenario whereby people get stuck to each other during sexual intercourse is common in those who are committing adultery, not people who are married,” said Gogo MaSibanda.
She said the couple also endured humiliation as they were dragged outside their lodgings exposing them to the overexcited crowd.
A neighbour who only identified himself as Ndlovu said the man’s father came to the couple’s rescue at around 11am and reportedly unlocked them after performing a certain ritual.
“He burnt some herbs and made them inhale the smoke. After that they were unlocked,” said Ndlovu.
In an interview with Radio Dialogue, Chitambuze said they want to quickly forget the embarrassing moment.
“I can’t say anything more, but what is done is done, it is behind us now. This has never happened during our marriage and my fear is that it can recur,” said Chitambuze who was visibly still in shock.
