A woman has pleaded with a Local Court in Lusaka to grant her divorce from her husband who she claims married another woman during separation. Angela Mwale says it was better the couple divorced for her to be free because she was too young to be left alone and might commit adultery as her blood was still running. Angela of Chazanga compound sued her husband, Gift Mbewe, 29, for divorce after separating for one year and five months. The two got married in 2011 and have two children. Mwale told Senior Court Magistrates Pauline Newa and Miyanda Banda at Matero Local Court that the she and Mbewe always differed because every time he had money he married more women. She explained that when they were still in the village, he married twice, a situation which became worse after they came to Lusaka. She explained in October 2016, Mbewe ran away from her, leaving her at his parent’s place for a month and that when he came back, he sent her to her parent’s in the village for farming but never bothered to bring her back. “I am young to be alone, my blood is still running I can commit adultery. It is the reason I want divorce to be free. Mbewe’s mother telephoned me and said he married another woman and that I should also get married,” said Mwale. In defence, Mbewe said he was surprised after he found a job, he discovered Angela had bought a ticket to go to the village when he had not allowed her. He explained that he used to send money to her, adding he did not want to divorce her so they could keep the children together. He denied marrying another woman. The court observed that the couple had stayed one year and five months on separation and that during that period Mbewe did make not an effort to repair their marriage, a demonstration he did not love her. The court said Mbewe had been marrying, leaving Angela alone, and reminded him that she was still young and she too wanted to make love. The court granted the couple divorce but ordered Mbewe to compensate Angela a total of K7000 with initial payment of K1000 followed by monthly instalments of K300. The court also ordered Mbewe to be paying K400 a month as maintenance fee for the children, while the household goods bought together would be shared equally.
