Game over: Married man caught filming neighbors wife while bathing

A 29-year-old man has been reported to filming his fellow tenant’s wife while she was having her bath. Reasons why he did that is unknown.

The man from Zimbabwe, Abraham Matenda, has been arraigned in court for shooting the video.

According to Standard, Matenda appeared before Masvingo Magistrate Court for invasion of privacy/criminal insult as defined in section 95 (1) (b) of the criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23 of the country.

The police prosecutor, Nancy Makuvise, told the Peter Madiba-led court that, on the 30th July 2017, Matenda invaded the privacy of the complainant, Mapkae Asaweyi, by placing a phone under the bathroom roof and recording a video of the complainant while bathing.

Asaweyi told the court that after discovering that there was a cell phone shooting a video of her taking a bath, she took the phone to Abraham’s wife who identified the phone as her husband’s.

The complainant then showed the accused’s wife the video which she deleted after viewing.

Matenda’s wife went on to open the phone’s gallery and found it containing another video of the complainant bathing which she also deleted.

In his defence, the accused denied all the charges levelled against him, arguing that on the same day in question he was not at home and he had left his phone charging.

However, the complainant told the court that she has an audio recording of the accused admitting to have recorded the complainant while bathing.

The case was adjourned to the 11th of August 2017 to allow the accused to bring his witnesses to court.
