Unless of course you don’t mind running the risk of paying a hefty fine like a Francistown woman who was recently ordered by the court to pay P60, 000 for marriage wrecking.
Kemiso Dijokota was sued by Naledi Mogae for P80 000, but the deputy Donga Customary Court president , Tebogo Stephen awarded the cheated wife P60 000 instead.
If Dijokota, 26, fails to pay, she will have her property auctioned to compensate her love rival, the court has ruled.
She is expected to settle her debt in installments of P500 per month beginning this month end.
Expressing satisfaction with the verdict. Naledi described the sentence as a deterrent to would-be home wreckers across the country .
Evidence brought before court indicated that Dijokota actively pursued Naledi’s husband, Kenneth ‘Keni’ Mogae even when the married couple tried to reconcile and make their marriage work.
Dijokota, a kitchen potter at a local filling station in Francistown had pleaded not guilty to a single count of marriage wrecking when she initially appeared before the court.
Naledi, a finance manager with a regional Christian non-governmental organization, travels a lot to South Africa, Swaziland and Namibia for work.
She told the court that she found out that during her absence, Dijokota often moved in to act as a ‘wife’.
After suspecting that her husband was cheating on her, Naledi mounted hidden cameras in their bedroom to record videos of the love cheats having sex which she produced in court as evidence.
Pronouncing Dijokota guilty as charged , Kgosi Stephen said the evidence brought before him was watertight and indisputable.
Mogae did not want to comment.
