During Zelinjo’s stay in hospital Nene finally moved all her belongings out of their matrimonial home.
After a short stint in hospital, Zelinjo recovered and was discharged but Zelinjo decided he was going to press charges for attempted murder against his wife, realizing this could all work to his advantage if she was convicted and sent to prison, he could get new documents and repossess all of Nene’s assets, he surmised with a view to disposing them off as quickly as possible.
Nene burst into hysterics at the irony of everything when she was served the summons and picked up by the police.
She was bailed by her parents and Nene arranged for a lawyer who would fight her case in court.
During the hearing, Nene provided all the evidence she had collected from her video and web cam recordings which she had stashed away safely precisely for such a time as this.
Her thinking proved to be fortuitous as all the charges brought against her were dropped since the evidence all showed Nene had acted in self defence.
Zelinjo on his part was subsequently charged and convicted for assault, battery and intent to commit fraud and murder.
He was sent to prison for 10 years, asked to pay damages and he lost his job as an Oil company executive.
His love interest Jumobi, ditched him as soon as she heard the verdict maintaining that at her age she could not afford to wait for a convicted criminal with no career prospects and no financial backing to his name.
Zelinjo found out to his dismay that Jumobi had turned out to be a worthless gold digger who was only after him for the prestige and money associated with being the wife of an Oil executive.
