Husband caught in bed with woman he introduced as sister

A 30-YEAR-OLD woman told a Lusaka Local Court that she could not believe with her eyes when she caught her husband making love on the matrimonial bed with a woman he introduced to her as his sister. This is in a case in which Esnart Lungu of Lusaka West sued her husband, Nosiku Kombwa, 32, for divorce. Lungu told Senior Court Magistrate Lewis Mumba sitting with Magistrate Abbyshine Michelo at Kanyama Local Court that she never enjoyed her marriage. She explained that in 2014 Kombwa went to a funeral of his sister in the village where he gave money to a woman after telling her that he was not married. A few days after he came from the village, a woman came and was introduced to her as a sister. Lungu further said that she normally left home early in the morning for her business but on this particular morning, she left her purse and decided to go back home to look for it. When she reached home, she was shocked to find Kombwa making love on the matrimonial bedroom with a woman he had introduced to her as his sister. “Kombwa beat me and the woman left and that was how I also left after he said that he did not love me and I started renting a house alone. “Since I left, Kombwa has married three women including the one he said was his sister but left him recently. He came to my house to break things and he threatens to kill me as he comes with objects at awkward hours,” said Lungu. Lungu produced a letter from a community chairman which strongly warned her husband about gender based violence. In defence, Kombwa said that he did not want divorce and that all that Lungu said were lies. Magistrate Mumba said that there was evidence of violence from the letter by the community chairman and that Kombwa was a womanizer because he did not challenge Lungu on that point. He granted the couple divorce ordering Kombwa to compensate Lungu with K5000 with initial payment of K500 followed by monthly instalments of K250 and to be paying child maintenance fee of K250 per month. Property acquired together would be shared equally.
