A 30 year old electrician of Chawama Compound in Lusaka and his 29-year-old wife this week shocked the Kanyama Local court as they openly slandered each in a bid to end their marriage.
While the woman claimed that her husband was a reckless drunk who spent all his money on alcohol and even urinates in pants when drank, the man said his wife has failed to become pregnant throughout their two-year-old marriage because she was once diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease.
The couple got married traditionally in 2018 and have no child.
She says the joy of her marriage only lasted two months because her husband spent all his money on drinking and gambling.
But when asked to tell his side of the story by Magistrate Mubukwanu Matalaka, Musonda’s Musonda’s husband said he had decided to take to the bottle he wasted over K10,000 trying to educate his wife who kept on failing.
He said he wishes the money he spent on her was diverted to other things like building or helping his old mother in the village.
The man added that the couple had even failed to have a child because his wife was once diagnosed with sexually transmitted disease which damaged her ovaries.
