A judge ordered a man to pay a woman for taking her virginity and then refusing to marry her.
Judge Marehwanazvo Gofa of Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe, made the landmark ruling and ordered the man to pay the woman.
Matthew Simango, was being sued by his former fiancee who claimed that she allowed him to take her virginity after he started paying her tuition and he proposed to her.
However, he later reneged on his promise to marry her. In court, he was ordered to pay $1,800 for the seduction and breach of promise.
The jilted woman had initially asked for $5,000 in damages, saying that she had only consented to the sexual demands of Simango after he agreed to finance her studies and to marry her.
In his defense, Simango claimed that he proposed to her and intended to marry her, but he refused to marry the woman when he discovered that she was not a virgin.
However, she denied the allegations saying she had passed a virginity test at her church before her sexual encounter with Simango.
