“He had been disturbing me that he wanted to marry me, but I said I was married.
On the day of the incident, I really can’t say if he used a charm on me. All I know is that he called me that he wanted to see me and I told him not to come; he knew my house and when he came, I didn’t know what happened.
He used to come and deliver snuff to me in the house. On the day of the incident, he told me he was coming from somewhere and that it was already late.
He wanted to sleep in our place till the next day. He didn’t know that my husband was away. He tried to sleep with me, but later he didn’t.”
The couples have been married since 2005 and have three children. Juliet said the she have been having issues with the husband because he didn’t take care of the children.
