The man, Jabulani Ncube, 40 got so angry with the incident that he assaulted her, so much so that the woman fled to her grandmother's place. However, Ncube was not satisfied with the punishment he handed out to his wife and went to the village court with the complaint that his wife was "uncultured and disrespectful". He further gave a warning to his wife that in case the wife did not dish out the breast and the drumstick to him in future he would definitely divorce her.
Sibanda seems to be liberated and a free spirit as she brushed aside her husband's allegations and threats with the simple logic that if she was expected to slaughter chicken for him then how long will she go without tasting the back portion? Unfortunately, her village people thought otherwise and she was found guilty and fined a chicken. In the whole ruckus, even her grandmother got dragged and was fined as well for failing to teach her granddaughter “how to treat her husband and dish out meals.” In spite of what the local authorities thought, the woman must be cheered for standing for her rights and being what she is.
