SENIOR Mukuni Ng’ombi of the Lenje in Central Province has warned against early marriages, saying those found wanting will be punished.
Senior Chief Mukuni Ng’ombe, who issued the warning recently, said early marriages have been banned in Chibombo, Chisamba, Kapiri Mposhi and Ngabwe districts.
“Anyone found wanting shall face the wrath of both customary and statutory law. I am warning my subjects to desist from practising early marriages,” he said.
Senior Chief Mukuni Ng’ombe said in a speech read on his behalf by Chief Chamuka that teaching of girls during initiation ceremonies should focus on empowering them and not focus on being wives.
