It has become a case of “it wasn’t me” as a former Chinese boss, Wungbo Shi, tries to distance himself from his previous employee, Indileni Nanyemba’s five-month pregnancy.
According to Nanyemba’s boyfriend, Jesaya Mushimba, when Chinese-owned Smart Shop closed last November in Oshakati, it left his girlfriend pregnant.
After investigations, he found out his girlfriend had had an affair with Shi and had fallen pregnant, as a result.
“There is no way she could have fallen pregnant by me, because we always used protection as from far back as last September when she said she didn’t want to fall pregnant, as things weren’t looking good at the shop. After my investigations, I discovered she had spent nights at the shop while I was out of town with work,” narrated Mushimba who is a truck driver.
He would be informed by a confidante of the affair at the beginning of the year when his girlfriend’s former boss moved back to Windhoek after a two-year stay in Oshakati, but took it all lightly.
“When I confronted her, she denied it all and later claimed her boss had initiated sexual demands from her but she never gave into his advances”.
Mushimba, who was in Katima Mulilo last week, said he has not asked Nanyemba to leave, pending the baby’s birth in four months’ time.
“There is already a lot of passion killing going on in the country and I don’t want to be part of it. I’m just waiting for her to give birth so I can take her back to her parents. Chinese or not, I know for sure the baby is not mine,” he added.
Although Nanyemba refused to comment on the allegations, her former boss, Shi, who spoke through an interpreter denied ever having a sexual relationship with her.
“It’s not true and I don’t know whether or not she’s pregnant. As far as I’m concerned, that part of my life is closed and I have moved on,” said Shi, who refused to meet this reporter.
