Woman bets household property

A 42-YEAR-OLD man of Chimwemwe township in Kitwe has opted to walk out of his 14-year-old marriage after accusing his wife in the Buchi local court of being in the habit of betting household property in illegal casinos.

Edwin Mpundu has sued his 36-year-old wife Agness Chola for divorce on grounds that she is irresponsible and has also finished off all household property through betting as a result of her love for alcohol.
When the matter came up for hearing before Buchi local court senior presiding magistrate Nsama Banda last week, Mpundu, who has three children with Chola, said when the couple got married, they lived in peace at his parents’ residence within Chimwemwe.
