A man hired a prostitute to come to his hotel room – and answered the door to his own daughter.

Titus Ncube, a married father-of-three, collapsed in shock while his daughter, 20, fled the hotel in tears.

Apology

Mr Ncube, from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, said he was having marital problems and decided to rent a room in a local hotel, followed by a prostitute.

He said: “I am sorry for what I did. I spoke to my wife and daughter. I apologised for my actions as I just wanted my family back. My daughter has stopped doing what she was doing and is going back to school next year.

Trauma

My marital problems are not over, but we have a counsellor who is helping us to get over this most difficult period.”

His wife Rosemary said: “If it were not for my children, I could have divorced him a long time ago. But because of the trauma that divorce has on children, I decided to stay.”
