Woman found guilty for failing to give husband best ‘chicken pieces’

Woman found guilty for failing to give husband best ‘chicken pieces’

A Zimbabwean woman who was assaulted by her husband last week and hauled to a village court has been found guilty for disobeying traditional custom by not giving him the chicken breast and leg.

According to a local newspaper, the woman gave her husband, 40-year-old Jabulani Ncube, the gizzard, wings and one leg during the meal, which infuriated the man who then beat up his wife and fled to his grandmother’s house for the night.

The man then hauled his wife, 24-year-old Nomusa Sibanda, to a village court the next day in Nkayi Communal Land and bitterly complained that his wife was disrespectful and warned that should she fail to give him the best part of the chicken again he would divorce her.

Sibanda defended her decision and stated: “How long shall I slaughter chickens and not taste the back portion?”.

The 24-year-old woman was fined a chicken, while her grandmother was found guilty of failing to teach her husband how “to treat her husband and dish out meals”.
