TROUBLED by his wife’s promiscuous behaviour, a man of Mansa has sued her for divorce after he caught her on two separate occasions sleeping with two different men in the bush.
Despite being forgiven, Given Chalwe has gone on to stay with another man, while at her parents home for counselling, and her husband, Royd Kalaba, has filed for divorce in the Mansa Local Court.
Kalaba testified before local magistrate Margaret Sankalimba that Chalwe is jealous and accuses him of sleeping with every woman he greets.
The two got married in 2005 and have four children. No dowry was paid.
He also accused her of spending too much time at her mother house.
“One day, my wife told me that she was going to visit her mother but took long to return home despite her mother’s home being near.
“I decided to follow her to her mother’s place. I saw two people sleeping together in the bush and to my surprise I discovered that it was my wife,” he recounted.
Kalaba said he forgave his wife.
Kalaba further narrated that months later, he decided to follow his wife who had gone to the market and found her having sex with another man under a tree in the bush.
Kalaba said he decided to take his wife to her mother’s house for counselling on how to maintain her marriage.
But two months later while at her mother’s place, Kalaba said, he received information that Chalwe was now staying with another man.
Kalaba said he opted to give Chalwe money to start business but she instead stopped going home, started drinking beer and never prepared food for him.
“I took her to her mother’s house again and I received information that she is now staying with another man,” he said
But Chalwe told the court that their stay in marriage was alright until she found Kalaba in bed with another woman.
She did not object to divorce but said her husband was a womaniser.
Local court magistrate Sankalimba adjourned the case for judgment.
