A manager at a tobacco company in Lilongwe last weekend learnt a lesson in fidelity the hard way after he was assaulted by a mistress.
William Makokola had a rude awak¬ening last Saturday when he was beaten by a disgruntled and jealous mistress.
When contacted for comment, Makokola demanded to know the source of the information and when this reporter refused to oblige, he slammed the phone.
"Who is your source of information? If you can't tell me the source then go to hell," he said.
The mistress (name withheld), who taught Makokola a lesson in fidelity, works for the Ministry of Finance.
When The Weekend Times asked for a comment, she refused to com-ment saying she has a reputation to protect:
"Sorry I cannot help you because I have a reputation to protect and I have children who look up to me. Why don't you ask the man himself?"
Information gathered indicates that the assault took place at Old Airport Airwing Club in Lilongwe on July 14.
An eyewitness said Makokola was in the company of another woman when he was confronted by the jealous mistress who was incensed at the sight of her man flirting with another woman.
The mistress took matters into her own hands and attacked Makokola.
Makokola, who divorced his wife sometime back, resides in Area 25 in Lilongwe.
