A WOMAN of Garden House has divorced her husband of 7 years at the Boma Local Court after he left home for a week and came back with shaved pubic hair.
This is in a matter in which Judith Musonda sued her husband Philip Moyo seeking divorce after being on separation for 1o months.
Musonda told senior local court magistrate Prudence Bwalya that her husband disappeared for a week and when he came back she discovered he was shaved on his private part.
“When I asked him about it, he said he didn’t want me and he didn’t want to waste his manhood on me,” Ms Musonda said.
She told the court her husband accused her of being a witch and even tried to kill her.
“I want the court to divorce us because he moved out and left me and we’ve been on separation for 1o months,” she said.
In defence, Moyo said when he started staying with Musonda in 2013, but he was just observing her.
“I never used to sleep well when I’m with her and I left because something strange used to hold my neck at night,” he said.
He told the court that his wife was a drunkard and used to come home as late as 22.00 or 23:00 hours from drinking.
“She didn’t want me to know when she gets home late so she would even park the car somewhere else. She once stole K3, 000 from me to use for business,
“I never married this woman. I just paid K500 for nsalamu. She was just my girlfriend. We had a lot of problems and when I told her we go to the witchdoctor, she refused,” he said.
The court found that the two were actually married.
Divorce was granted and Moyo was then ordered to compensate Musonda with K3, 000.
