A 38 year old woman narrated before a Local Court in Lusaka that she wanted to divorce her husband because each time he drinks beer he defecates and urinates in his clothes.
This is in a case in which Sheba Kalenda a businesswoman of Old Kanyama compound sued her husband, Robby Machile, 42, a carpenter for divorce.
However, Machile said that he still loved his wife.
Kalenda told Senior Court Magistrate Abbyshine Michelo sitting with Magistrate Lewis Mumba at Kanyama Local Court that shortly after they married, Machile started complaining that she liked laughing as if she was a prostitute.
She explained that Machile brought his girlfriend home on the pretext that she was his relative.
Kalenda said in 2010, Machile had another girlfriend whom she found her with after a tip off.
She further said that Machile told her (Kalenda’s) mother that she was using his manhood and he later apologised later by giving her money and a chicken.
“Machile started drinking carelessly and we came to court in November 2016 for divorce but I reconciled with him after he promised to stop.
“He has not made love to me for three years. I think God has not given me this man,’’ said Kalenda. In defence, Machile said that he still loved Kalenda and that they would soon be clocking 22 years in marriage.
He explained that there would be no one who will keep the children if they divorced and he promised Kalenda that he would stop drinking beer.
In submission, Kalenda said that she wanted to divorce Machile because he defecates and urinates in his clothes whenever he was drunk and that it was the reason she left the bedroom.
Magistrate Michelo said that it is difficult for someone to stop drinking beer when he was addicted and that the couple was in court last year but Machile never changed.
He granted the couple divorce without compensation but Machile was ordered to be paying child maintenance fee of K500 per month.
The house would remain with Kalenda and the children.
