Kainos Taruvinga, a doctor in Zimbabwe tired of telling his ex-wife, Chenjerai Chai, that their relationship had ended, came up with a plan to end their relationship by “hiring” aspiring boyfriends to propose to her in order to shift her focus off him.
Finally Taruvinga was able to distance himself from his ex-wife, Chai, Zimbabwe’s B Metro reported on Friday.
Chai met Taruvinga when she came to see him as a patient, and it was only a short while before they started dating. From there they decided to get married.
However it did not take long for the couple to realise they were not made for one another. Taruvinga eventually moved out of the house leaving Chai with their two-month-old child.
Taruvinga intended to completely severe ties with Chai and stopped looking after their daughter.
B-Metro caught up with Chai who said that she felt Taruvinga took advantage of her situation and Taruvinga’s friends had alerted her that he was now sending them to ask her out.
“I understand that now Taruvinga is sending men to ask me out. I don’t know the reason behind all this. All l want from him is to pay for wasting my time and dumping me with his daughter. He will not get away with this. I am really hurt,” she said.
Chai stated that when their second child died, they buried him on their own without any family members, meaning he did not want her known to his family.
Taruvinga denied all the allegations saying that he even paid lobola (bride-price) but it was Chai’s traumatic behaviour that forced him to leave her before it was too late.
“I don’t know what Chai is talking about. I left because I was afraid she will end up killing herself as she was threatening to kill herself. Even some of her family members advised me to leave her because she has been violent ever since,” he said.
“I am not sending any men to her. I moved on with my life, I don’t care what she is doing. As I speak l gave her US$150 last week to help maintain our daughter.”
