The 44-year-old man and his 38-year-old married lover are now at a Harare police station.
The womanâ€™s husband is in South Africa and is said to be aware of his wifeâ€™s predicament. The lovers have been stuck for more than 48 hours.
It is said that the man who is also married is a local businessman and has promised to pay huge sums to anyone who can unlock him. But it appears only the husband has the â€œkey to the lock.â€
Police have had to ring the womanâ€™s husband in South Africa who said he was not in a hurry to return home. He would see if he can get time off from work to come and attend to the problem.
The man got wind of his wifeâ€™s adultery and decided to fix her. A traditional healer provided the tools to lock her and he waited. Now those close to him said he wanted revenge to a woman who has humiliated him. He has said the marriage was over and wanted the woman and her lover to suffer.
