Miscarriage lead to divorce

A TWENTY-ONE-year-old woman of Chaisa narrated to the Matero local court how she was chased from her matrimonial home after she had a miscarriage.
When she testified before magistrate Pauline Newa, Elizabeth Tembo told the court that she accidentally took traditional herbs her husband’s relatives gave her and she had a miscarriage.
“My husband has been telling me that I am barren. At one point, he went to tell his relatives who in turn went to look for traditional herbs. I did not know that I was pregnant and that the herbs would cause a miscarriage,” she said.
