‘She’s your girlfriend, not wife’

THE Chilenje Local Court castigated a man of Lusaka for insisting that his wife be traditionally counselled on how to live in a marriage when he did not pay any bride price.
Senior Court Magistrate Sharon Sichone wondered how Enock Mbwe wanted his lover counselled on how to keep her marriage when he was not married to her.
“How can she be counselled on how to live with a boyfriend? You should legalise your marriage by paying for her bride price if you want your lover to be taught,” the court said.
This was in a matter in which Elina Chibwe sued Mbwe for maintenance of his two children.
