In a song called “Nali no Munandi,” the late PK Chishala depicts the betrayal of a guy who went so far as to try to seduce his closest friend’s wife.
After being caught in the act of attempting to Violate his best friend’s wife, a 34-year-old Lufwanyama man has demonstrated that the illustration is accurate.
Innocent Hanombe, who cannot be classified as having the name “Innocent,” is accused of breaking into the home of his best buddy while he was at work and attempting to violate his wife.
The victim, who was lying naked in bed, opened her eyes to discover that the man touching her was her husband’s best friend. She shouted after being horrified to realize that the man in her bed was not her spouse due to the smell of beer, which her own husband does not like.
The incident was confirmed by Copperbelt police commanding officer Peacewell Mweemba, who added that Hanombe has since been detained and charged with both criminal trespass and indecent assault.
He claimed that when the victim’s husband was away at his tarven working, the event happened on Monday about 22:00.
“Brief facts are that the complainant was sleeping in her house on her bed on Monday April 3rd, 2023 at around 22:00 hours. Her husband, was out at his tavern where he sells beer. She left the door unlocked as she was expecting her husband to go back home. Later, she just felt a hand touching her naked body after removing the blanket she had covered herself with,” he said.
Mr Mweemba explained that initially, the victim thought it was her husband, but when the suspect moved closer, she realized that he was smelling beer, which her husband does not drink.
“She opened her eyes and turned to look at the person only to discover it was not her husband who had been touching her in their bedroom ,but his best friend , Innocent Hanombe. She shouted for help, and her sister-in-law heard and rushed to her house with other family members,” he said.
Mr Mweemba said the suspect was apprehended within the house and the matter was reported to Lufwanyama Police Station.
