Virginity damage costs ‘irresponsible’ man K3, 000

The Boma Local Court in Lusaka has ordered a man of Barlastone to pay K3, 000 for virginity damage.

This is in a matter in which Irene Mulenga, 58, sued John Mwanza, 34, for deflowering and impregnating her daughter.

Mulenga told senior local court magistrate Silvia Kabunda that Mwanza impregnated her daughter in 2007 and left her. He later impregnated her again.

“We called and charged him for damage and he accepted to pay but he didn’t. I even used to call him my son-in-law. He just used to promise to pay but till now he hasn’t paid anything,

“In fact the first time he got my child, I suffered looking for her and checked at police stations and even the mortuaries. Later when he impregnated her, we charged him K1, 500 but he hasn’t paid,” she said.

In his defence Mwanza said after he impregnated Ms. Mulenga’s daughter the first time, her family charged him K1, 500 for both dowry and virginity damage of which he only paid K300.

“I was staying with her daughter at the time but because we used to have problems, her mother got her,

“I complained to my relatives who visited my mother-in-law and she told them there was no marriage between me and her daughter. I decided to move on with my life and got married to someone else,” he said.

The court found Mwanza irresponsible and because too much time had passed, magistrate Kabunda ordered him to pay K3, 000 for virginity damage.
