Mbombela - A 40-year-old Mpumalanga woman says she'll never ever be able to have sex because her husband put super glue on her genitals, scarring her for life.

The woman, who cannot be named to protect her dignity, lives in Ngwamtila village near Bushbuckridge.

Her husband, whose name is known to African Eye News Service, allegedly put the super glue on her vagina on 9 March 2013, after accusing her of cheating on him with her uncle.

"My husband was an abusive man for many years. His abuse spiralled out of control when my uncle dropped me off at our home. He then accused me of cheating on him with my uncle. It was shocking because he knew my uncle well and even greeted him nicely when he dropped me off," says the woman.

She said after screaming at her he told her that he would teach her a lesson.

"Every time the month of March comes along I remember the cruelty that he showed me. He took out a panga and ordered me to take off my clothes. As I started doing that he told me that if I didn't do it he would chop off my head with the panga. He had previously tried to chop off my hand with the panga but I managed to escape. This time I could not escape.

"He then ordered me to lie down and open my legs. He then took out super glue and applied it on my vagina while I looked at him with horror and tears streaming down my face. I do not know what would make a man who loves a woman do that to her," she said.

Asked if her husband was ever arrested for his cruel actions she said: "I wanted to press charges but he fled and has not been seen since the incident. I am scared that he might come back anytime and remove my head."

The woman feels pain every time she urinates.
