I want to Marry my Mother

A Zimbabwean woman and her son have done the unthinkable – they have fallen in love with one  another. And now they want to  marry since the mom, Betty Mbereko from Mwenezi in  Masvingo, is six months pregnant and expecting her son’s child.

Mbereko (40), who was widowed 12 years ago, has been  cohabiting with her first child,  Farai Mbereko (23).

She confirms that she is six months pregnant and that she  has decided it is better to
“marry” her son because she  does not want to marry her late husband’s young brothers, whom she says are coveting her.

Betty stunned a village court last  week when she said the affair  with her son had begun three years earlier.

She said after spending a lot of  money sending Farai to school  following the death of her
husband, she felt she had a right to his money and no other  woman was entitled to it.

“Look, I strove alone to send my son to school and no one helped  me. Now you see that my son is
working and you accuse me of  doing something wrong.

“Let me  enjoy the products of my sweat,” she told the village court.

Farai said he was more than  prepared to marry his mother and would pay off the ilobola
balance his father had left unpaid  to his grandparents.

“I know my father died before he  finished paying the bride price and I am prepared to pay it off,”
he said.

“It is better to publicise what is  happening because people  should know that I am the one  who made my mother pregnant.

Otherwise they will accuse her of  promiscuity.”

But local headman Nathan  Muputirwa says: “We cannot allow this to happen in our  village, mashura chaiwo aya, (This is a bad omen indeed). In  the past they would have to be killed but today we cannot do it  because we are afraid of the  police.” He warned them to break off their marriage or leave his  village.

They chose the latter and have left the village for an unknown destination.

Sahara Reporters abeg if you no get news or anything to report make una organize some picnic or go sight seeing instead of this kind low life reporting that only presents you unprofessional. Just came upon this on sahara reporters' facebook page: 

with this quote: "The Action Congress Of Nigeria had its dangerous thugs too! Chief Olusegun Osoba a former journalist with a broom here supervises the assault on a photo journalist at the swearing-in ceremony of Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state. A good photo journalist protects his camera."

Sahara Reporters, if this photo journalist was your staff  'How on Earth did he get up on that podium' in the first place? Now if this was in US, and I imagine a photo journalist getting too close for comfort, that man would have been knocked down flat by security. I'm sure the person that took this picture knows what his lens is meant to be used for. Your Photo Journalist should use his camera instead of going too close to pose for the camera. LOL!
