Man steals wife’s urine, drinks to cure self

Lusaka High Court

A HARARE man was yesterday granted a protection order against his wife by the Civil Court after admitting in court that he sometimes stole and drank his partner’s urine as a way of cleansing himself from the latter’s juju, which he said she always applied before having sexual intercourse.

Abel Humure made the startling revelations when he appeared before Harare magistrate Babara Mateko seeking a protection order against Agnes Buzuzi, whom he accused of forcing him to have sexual intercourse after inserting traditional herbs in her private parts.

Humure told the court Buzuzi uses the traditional herbs to “lock” him so as to cause illness to his other sexual partners.


Humure said on a particular day, he actually witnessed Buzuzi inserting traditional herbs in her private parts.

“I had to steal her urine from a bucket that she uses at night, hide the urine on top of the wardrobe and then I later took it to work where I drank it,” Humure said.

He also told the court that as a result of Buzuzi’s herbs, his second wife’s tummy once “swelled up” after he had had sexual intercourse with her.

“This woman went to a witch-doctor and bewitched me. That is why my other wife’s stomach got swollen after we had had sex. My second wife also had to drink my urine to ease the swollen stomach,” Humure said.

However, in response to the allegations, Buzuzi vehemently denied the claims, saying Humure could have mistaken a panty liner for traditional herbs.

“I do not use any herbs. He (Humure) might have seen me putting on a panty liner,” Buzuzi said.

Buzuzi also denied forcing Humure into sexual intercourse, saying the last time they had intercourse was seven months ago.

“I have even asked him to give me a divorce token if he no longer loves me because nowadays, he sleeps at the far end of the bed, turning his back to me,” Buzuzi said.

Mateko granted the order and instructed Buzuzi not to abuse Humure in any way.
