Get ‘em out of abusive marriages

THE Supreme Court has urged parents to withdraw their children from abusive marriages.
And Supreme Court judge Gregory Phiri has described a case in which a 23-year-old man of Kapiri Mposhi murdered his 13-year-old sister-in-law after a marital dispute with his wife as gruesome.
Justices Phiri, Jones Chinyama and Rhodah Kaoma heard how Lesley Mutale murdered his sister-in-law by smashing her head with a car battery after his wife left him.
This was after his father-in-law Joseph Kapwaya withdrew and dissolved his daughter’s marriage with Mutale because he physically and sexually abused her.
