Man sued over bride price

SYLVESTER CHISHIMBA, Lusaka
A MAN found himself on the other side of the law when he was sued for failure to settle K4,000 bride price, 14 years later.
Kamwaya Kamwaya, 70, of  Barlastone sued Wafunganji Marebeka, 47, also of Barlastone for failure to pay bride price towards his daughter’s hand in marriage despite living with her since 2001.
Kamwaya told the Matero Local Court that his son-in-law has failed to pay despite being given ample time to do so.
He pleaded with Senior Court Magistrate Lewis Mumba to order Marebeka to fulfil his obligation.
Marebeka who did not deny the charge also pleaded with the court to give him two months to settle the K4, 000 starting next month in August.
But the court ordered Marebeka to pay the bride price starting July month end in monthly installments of K500.
