"I Love My Mother And I Want To Marry Her" - Zimbabwean Man

A Masvingo woman and her son
have fallen in love with one
another. And now they want to
marry since the mom,
Mbereko from Mwenezi in
Masvingo, is six months
pregnant and expecting her
son's child.
Mbereko (40), who was
widowed 12 years ago, has
been cohabiting with her first
child, Farai Mbereko (23).
She confirms that she is six
months pregnant and that she
has decided it is better to
"marry" her son
because she
does not want to marry her
late husband's young brothers,
whom she says are coveting
Betty stunned a village court last
week when she said the affair
with her son had begun three
years earlier.
She said after spending a lot of
money sending Farai to school
following the death of her
husband, she felt she had a
right to his money and no
other woman was entitled to
"Look, I strove alone to send
my son to school and no one
helped me. Now you see that
my son is working and you
accuse me of doing something
wrong. "Let me enjoy the
products of my sweat," she
told the village court. :lol:
Farai said he was more than
prepared to marry his mother
and would pay off the ilobola
balance his father had left
unpaid to his grandparents.
"I know my father died before
he finished paying the bride
price and I am prepared to pay
it off,"
he said.
"It is better to publicise what is
happening because people
should know that I am the one
who made my mother pregnant.
Otherwise they will accuse her
of promiscuity."
But local headman Nathan
Muputirwa says:
"We cannot
allow this to happen in our
village, mashura chaiwo aya,
(This is a bad omen indeed). In
the past they would have to
be killed but today we cannot
do it because we are afraid of
the police." He warned them
to break off their marriage or
leave his village.
They chose the latter and have
left the village for an unknown
