A VIOLENT husband who has been divorced in the Matero Local Court by his wife has been advised to be careful with his life.

Euprasia Shatonola,32,of Kanyama sued her husband Paul Shatonola,37, of the same compound for divorce for being violent.

The two were appearing before Magistrate Miyanda Banda.

They got married in 2011 and have two children, They have been on separation for 2 years.

Euphrasia told the court that Paul was violent and would always beat her.

“Our problems started four months after we got married. After his contract ended, I was the one that was working and he would sleep out for 4-5 days. Whenever I say anything he would beat me,

“We went to the village and his uncle knelt down and asked me to forgive Paul of which I did but he has never given me money ever since we got married” she said

She was the one paying rentals and usually he would use knife’s and screwdrivers when beating her.

“That is why I left him because he would beat me and the children. When I took the summon he called saying he will kill me our marriage cannot end,” said Euphrasia”.

In defence Paul told the court that they were both violent and used emotions.

“We are equally on physical violence, she had tied me to the bed when I was drunk and beat me up. I was bedridden for 3 months. She was the one working and she had power over me she ruled the house.” He said

“You don’t have the right to kill and as a man you should use your brain and not emotions. You will be the first suspect if anything happens to her,” said Magistrate Banda

He told Paul to be careful with his life adding that if the marriage ended so be it as she was not the only woman in the world,

Magistrate Banda said the court could not force marriage on people granted divorce to the couple.

“Children will be maintained on a monthly fee of K500 effective July,” He said
