A British businessman rushed to the hospital after taking Zim medical nurse wife with a boyfriend in the dormitory of the monastery
A nurse who claimed she was "taken" with luxury gifts by her wealthy fiance threw her engagement ring in court because she was ordered to pay her more than £ 200,000.
Trish Garikayi, 37, said she was a "woman preserved" during her six-year relationship with businessman Wisdom Penfold for 58 years receiving gifts including a Porsche 911 and a 100,000 bracelet pounds from Mayfair Aspreys jewelers.
However, Mr. Penfold insisted that Miss Garikayi "appropriated" money while she was blinded by love, spending large sums of money she had to buy a house together.
The couple broke up in 2015 when Mr. Penfold found her in bed with another man, which led to a bitter fight in court for money.
Judge Alexander Hill-Smith decided yesterday in favor of Mr Penfold, forcing Miss Garikayi to pay £ 116,000, to hand over 20% of her house £ 340,000 and to pay £ 62,000.
After the judge said that Miss Garikayi had "happy eyes to win the case," and did not believe her evidence, she pulled out the £ 2,500 commitment ring and threw her over the courtroom to Mr. Penfold.
The businessman, an importer and exporter of trees, quietly took the discarded jewels and handed it to the applicant.
The London central court heard that the couple met after meeting in a hospital café in 2009 and became engaged four years later.
But Mr. Penfold was devastated when he returned home in 2015 to find Mrs. Garikayi in bed with another man (doctor) and was so shaken that he had to rush A & E.
Miss Garikayi claimed that the couple had already split, but Judge Hill-Smith said he believed Mr. Penfold's "relationship" was "convincing" about the end of their "perfect" relationship.
The court heard that £ 218,000 had been paid into Mrs Garikayi's account after Mr Penfold sold two investment properties but insisted that it was a gift because "if I wanted something, I would succeed."
"The nature of the relationship was one in which Mr. Penfold granted and brought Miss Garikayi with generous gifts," said his lawyer, Chike Ezike.
It was claimed that Mr Penfold made her go to luxury holidays in Paris, Spain, Indonesia and Dubai and bought a Porsche, a BMW and a Mercedes and a £ 100,000 bracelet.
But Mr Penfold refused to be so generous: "I think if I gave 100,000 pounds for a bracelet, I remember it very well. I think it would have been welded to my brain for the rest of my life."
He accepted to buy gifts from Miss Garikayi, including Burberry coats and Jimmy Choo shoes, but denied giving up large amounts of money or ever buying a car.
His Barrister, Richard Alford, said that Miss Garikayi insisted on depositing 218,000 pounds in her account to mark the "seriousness of their relationship."
"He did as he asked, instructing him that funds should be kept in the account and would not be used if he did not say that," said Mr Alford.
However, Miss Garikayi has spent the money itself, including 91,000 pounds to buy a property in Harare, Zimbabwe without her permission, learned the court.
The judge ruled that Mr Penfold also paid a £ 35,000 deposit for Mr. Garikayi's property in Guildford, which he bought for £ 275,000 in 2015, and financed renovations and two mortgage payments. This expense now justified some of the property.
The judge said the acquisition of housing in Zimbabwe was "in breach of trust" because he decided in favor of Mr. Penfold on his financial claims.
Mrs. Garikayi now has six months to buy her former Guildford property or will be sold, and the proceeds will be split.
Following the ruling, he was required to pay £ 30,000 for Mr Penfold's legal costs within three weeks and was told that lawyers would eventually try to double this bill.
