A woman of Lusaka has sued her husband to court for divorce for turning her into a punching bag every time they have a misunderstanding.

Serah Tembo,31, told Chelstone Presiding Magistrate Mary Namangala that she was tired of the marriage and only wanted divorce because of her husband’s cruelty.

But her husband Dinabantu Chavuta,38 of Mtendere denied the allegations, claiming that his wife aborted his pregnancy without his knowledge and that was the reason he resorted to beating her.

“Since 2012 I have never known peace in my own house, we have two children together and no dowry was paid,

“My husband has been beating me a lot like a dog and he always shouts ‘thief’ after throwing me outside,” Tembo0 said.

She feared for her life because one day he might kill her and leave the children to suffer on their own.

Tembo said all she wanted was divorce to have peace for herself.

But the court dismissed the case because there was no marriage to talk about since dowry was not paid.
