A 26year old woman has failed to live up to her marriage due to petty problems with her husband. The woman Catherine Banda, stays with her husband at Kabana Township with 3 kids from their marriage.
According to the woman, her husband’s attitude if inspecting her private part every day is a worry to her.
“Problems in our marriage started in 2018 when my husband started inspecting me whenever he comes from work. He would always suspect me of sleeping with other men whenever he goes for work, a situation that I don’t like,” she said.
Banda also stated that her husband has been beating her. “Last he beat me and asked me to leave his house or that he would kill me if he finds me.
I am tired of being beaten and I cannot continue being in marriage with him,” she said. She continued that she can’t stay with her husband because she is not safe.
Mr Zimba in response told the court that problems in their marriage started in November 2018 when he caught his wife sleeping with another man. My wife came home with a parcel that she hid under the bed.
When I enquired about it, she said the parcel was for the neighbor. Last time I caught her with a man on our matrimonial bed. The man ran away,” he said.
Zimba pleaded with the court not to divorce them but the court refused and divorced them on a ground that there is no love, he was ordered to compensate Banda with K5,000 and maintain his three children with K300 every month.
