Mgcini Elton Gumbo fears if he does not solve his ere_ctile dysfunction his wife will leave him for good.
The 24-year-old troubled man from Bulawayo’s Sizinda suburb said his problems started two months ago when he was beaten up at a drinking spot.
“I had an argument with a man I met at a bar. After that I went to a nearby bush to relieve myself. While I was uri_nating he ambushed me and hit me with a log from behind. I fell down and he started hitting and kicking my private parts. He left me struggling to crawl and howling in pain until a passerby came to help me,” said Gumbo.
Since then it has been clinic after clinic in search of medical assistance because every time he tried having se_x it just couldn’t happen.
“At first I thought I couldn’t have se_x because of the pain. I continuously went to the hospital for medication but now I don’t feel any pain, but still I can’t get an erecti0n,” he said.
Now his marriage of two years that was characterised by a supercharged libido is practically a sleeping town.
“I no longer feel as if I am a man. I was afraid that my wife might leave me because my inability to perform has caused tensions between us. To avoid further embarrassment I told her to go to her parents’ home for a while so that I can have time to seek help,” he said.
