There was drama in Bulawayo last week when the bride’s father and bridegroom’s mother were caught sexercing bedroom gymnastics much to the embarrassment of all the relatives.
The bizarre incident has caused so much friction between the new couple such that there is now a high possibility that they will terminate their shortlived marriage.
According to ZimEye, the Mzwananzi family and their in-laws from Siyezhukwe in Gwanda last week travelled from their different homes to attend a wedding for their daughter, and son in-law respectively, which was held in Bulawayo.
The new couple who have since stopped travelling for their honeymoon, refused to be identified in the press for reprisals.
The daughter in-law’s mother passed away when she was still in high school, while her husband’s father also died when he was about to complete his tertiary education at one of Bulawayo’s technical colleges.
The wedding ceremony went well and everyone was happy, with both families expressing their joy and pleasure for the new couple. However, in the middle of the party, after one too many, the two parents somehow agreed to make love. Suspicion is rife that they had started dating before hand. They then spent the greater part of the night busy at it like rabbits.
The marathon bedroom sessions were apparently so vigorous and too sweet -presumably because of the drought on account of their deceased spouses-that the two overslept and the whole family discovered them in each other’s arms fast asleep in the morning!
One close relative who identified herself as Bongiwe Tshuma, said the two have since become inseparable and are now living together much to the chagrin of the two families. “We are very disappointed by our parents, who have failed to respect their kids who have just wedded.”
Another relative from the son in-laws’ family who preferred to be called Baba Nkala, had no kind words for the two and declared war on them saying they were a threat to the relationship of the young couple. “We will get to the bottom of the issue, as it is embarrassing to both families. How can they wait for the wedding to reveal their affair,” asked a disgraced Nkala.
The clergyman who joined the two unfortunate offspring of the shameful in-laws expressed utter disgust and recomended counselling and deliverance. “We will try our best to sit down with the new couple to ignore the devilish moment and move forward with life.”
Reporters tracked the love birds to their hiding place, and they were not at liberty to reveal their next move, as they also refused to comment and referred all questions to the one who tipped us.
Efforts to get more comments from the couple as to what they will do were fruitless by the time of going to press, as the two were still pondering their next move and they also refused to be photographed.
