Woman ordered to refund dowry

MWILA NTAMBI, Kitwe
THE Buchi Local Court has ordered a woman to pay her former fiancé K500 as part of the bride price that he paid to her family when he wanted to marry her.

Paul Misateka had dragged Juliet Lungu to court, demanding a refund of K900 in bride price deposit that he had paid to her family when he wanted to marry her.

Misateka told the court that he had decided to break his engagement to Lungu in 2015 because she liked clubbing and flirting with a lot of men.
