The Mansa local court has reprimanded and ordered a woman of Mansa to pay her husband of 20 years K10,000 for abandoning him after he educated her from Grade Nine up to university level where she obtained a degree in teaching.
In his evidence, Vincent Tembo, who has been sued by his wife, Maria Tembo, for divorce, lamented before the court how his wife, who now speaks English like an American, abandoned him because of the college degree she obtained at his expense. The two tied the knot in 1997 and have two children together.
These days its a common practice that young ladies are getting long-term boyfriends who take care of their school requirements but once they graduate and are set, they dump the man. So glad the court ruled in the man’s favour as a lesson to all women who might be planning to play the same card…
