A WOMAN of Zani Muone has divorced her husband of 13 years in the Boma Local Court alleging that he does not sleep at night and stays awake gazing at her, among other strange things.

Alice Phiri, 35 who sued John Nyirenda, 46, said they got married in 2006, and stayed well up to 2017 when her husband just woke up one day and packed all his belongings.

“He told me we should both leave our house and go our separate ways. He told me that he and our children had been having bad dreams and that he was not going to manage to stay with me. He left but later came back and then left for the second time,” Phiri said.

She then suggested that they go to church the next day but her husband left home and the next thing she received a call from her sister in law saying he had been admitted to hospital.

“When I went to the hospital my husband refused me to go near him and said my eyes were glowing. I thought maybe he had cerebral malaria. He told me some spells were being done on him and the clinic was not the right place to be,” Phiri said.

Nyirenda later stopped sleeping at night all together and he kept staring at Phiri, claiming that there were some people troubling him.

“Whenever   I wake up, I find him looking at me. He says people are troubling him. Sometimes he mumbles things that I don’t understand and he says there are people who use him at night.

“He no longer eats the food I cook and even throws it away. I put a Christian sticker from church on the door and he removed it and said it was unGodly. I’m scared of staying with him now because in case something happens to him I may be blamed,” Ms Phiri said.

Nyirenda then told the court that what brought problems in their marriage started in 2016 when he found medicine in their wardrobe that he suspected was causing him to fail to have an erection.

“I only manage to have an erection when I’m in bed with her and she touches my abdomen. The minute I leave the bed I cannot have an erection and it only happens when I’m in bed with her and not any other time,” Mr Nyirenda said.

The court found that Nyirenda has a problem with the issue of sex and suspects his wife of being the reason.

It ruled that the marriage could not continue and divorce was granted.
