A driver who was caught sleeping with his friend's wife said she forced him to avoid paying her fare.
A taxi driver who was caught having sex with the wife of his close friend near his house defended himself by saying that the woman actually forced him to sleep with her to avoid paying him his fare.
The incident happened in Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, after Patrick Chanda was caught by his friend having sex with his wife inside his car. Chanda, according to reports, usually drives his friend's wife to work on a daily basis.
After he was caught, Chanda tried to explain himself away thus:
"After taking her for work in the morning, she told me that she will give me money later in the afternoon after she comes back from work.
I agreed because that is the nature of our work. She later called me around 7.30pm to pick her up from Chilanga were she said she had traveled for work and I agreed.
After picking her up, I drove to Lusaka Hellen Kaunda area where she resides and I demanded that she pay me my money I have worked for.
Instead she complained that she didn't have money and told me to sleep with her. I tried to insist to just give me my money, but she removed her underwear and squeezed me. It was at this stage that I got carried away and slept with her in my car."
But his explanation did not go down well with the woman's husband who pounced on Chanda and gave him the beating of his life before handing him over to the police.
