Chief Forcing Me To Pay US$150 Plus a Goat For Claiming For My Asset

One of our readers recently reached out to us with a problem he was/is facing. He wanted to share it with the world to see if anyone could offer him possible solutions. He sent through his story but we were not sure if it was a joke or something that really took place. We decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and publish (note: this has been published unedited) his story to let you be the judge (and maybe provide him with a possible solution):

I’m a 21yrs boy I stay in Johannesburg South Africa. On October 15, 2011 when I went home I felt in love with Michelle Pfumandiwe, 17. She forced me to go & see my family like she was planning to be with me in life, we did the same to her family. She was from poor family. When I was ready to go back to work she asked for my expensive cell phone blackberry bold, she asked for some clothes for to wear I did gave her, she asked for some money for her family to survive with love I did everything & we promise each to be together for ever. A week, I came back to work Lesly Chipere my rural friend came over my back to my girlfriend & quickly get married to her. My mum called me & knew me that Michelle was married to Lesly. I felt hurt, I try I call her Lesly received my call, as I asked Lesly what was going on he couldn’t tell me.

After a month I called her again, in friendly way I asked Lesly to ask his girlfriend to go & return what is belongs to me to my mum. Dec sam year I loose my job, bad lucky was following my back, two day after I loose my job I get arrest as a suspect, I asked myself why all these bad thing there are just for me. Mid Dec I called my mum & she told me that Michelle called her & told her she must tell me to stop calling her because if I continue calling her she gonna make me disappear in this world, in shona akaramba achindifonera ndomunyudza mukamushaya.

January 2012 I went home, I called her aunt asking to meet her and she agreed. I went to her home where we were promised to meet each other. I told her my story she help me with nothing, I called her husband & he told me to come & negotiate, I went to his home I saw him wearing my ‘G-Unit’ T-shirt, using my phone. Without argument he took me to chief”s caught where I got assaulted, chief’s regimen put me handcuffs & they say I’m an MDC supporter so I must go & ask Tsvangirai to help me, they say I must pay us$150 plus a got for underrate someone’s family, they didn’t allow me to explain.

    Just a random questions “How come he keeps getting arrested”? I don’t know how genuine this is, if it is, it’s really unfortunate and I suggest he lets laying dogs lay.
