Sex Scandal

Charlene Dzokese claimed that she cheated with her husband's best friend Beloved Chiweshe and Zamchiya in a bid to secure a job for her husband, Mehluli Dube.

Dzokese confirmed she dated the two men after being promised to get her husband a job since he had not been gainfully employed since 2014. Said Dzokese:

Indeed I cheated on Mehluli not that I wanted to but I had no choice, we have been suffering for years now and we have a minor to fend for. I know how hard life can be because at some point I once stayed in the streets and I am an orphan, I only want the best for my son. So when his best friend presented me with the opportunity that he would get my husband a job and his former boss Zamchiya promised to get him something at Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition where he is the director, I jumped at it.
