Kuwadzana woman dumps husband of four years for another woman
A Kuwadzana woman has dumped her husband of four years for another woman. Ketina Anania, nee Taingorufu (28), reportedly hooked up with her partner when she used to play ladies soccer in Mufakose.
In an interview, Ketina's mother - better known as Mai Masomera in her neighbourhood - said her daughter left her husband after she opted to 'marry' her female friend.
"Ketina left her husband saying she was a lesbian. She disappeared after I refused to bless her marriage. She first disappeared in February and came back for a few days in June and from that time we don't know her whereabouts," she said.
Ketina was not available for comment. Her husband, identified as Anania Anania, confimed that Ketina left home without his knowledge eight months ago.
"I am not aware of Ketina's whereabouts after she unceremoniously left home," said Anania.
Ketina's mother believes the lesbian partner met Ketina during her soccer playing days.
"Ketina had been coming here along with her friends she used to play soccer with in Mufakose and opened up to us that she wanted to be married to another woman. This is so strange to me and I am very cross about it. From the time she started wearing men's clothing, I questioned her about it. At times she would ask her younger sister to buy her mbanje (marijuana) and smoke it with her partner in her young sister's presence," said Ketina's mother.
She added that she is now staying with Ketina's son after the father of the boy refused to take care of him over Ketina's issue.
"Zvakabva nekupi zvekuti vanhukadzi vanoroorana vega pachavo? (Where did she get this homosexual culture from). She left her mobile phone with me so we do not have any other means of communicating with her. She is causing so much pain and suffering to me, a widow who is struggling to make ends meet," said Mai Masomera.
Ketina's husband said: "She never showed any signs of being a lesbian during our four years in marriage and we were joined in holy matrimony on our wedding day. I looked for her at her parents' house and she was not there. She left my child with her mother. I then heard from grapevine that she is now into homosexuality."
