LUSAKA Water and Sewerage Company public relations officer Nshamba Muzungu has been sued for divorce by his wife Mutinta Chilala in the Lusaka High Court.
According to her petition for dissolution of their seven-year marriage, Chilala who is a medical doctor said she was lawfully married to Muzungu on December 15, 2012 at the registrar’s office at Civic Centre in Lusaka.
She said the pair last lived together as husband and wife at house number 105, Minestone Chainama.
And Muzungu who consented to a decree nisi being granted said he and his wife have been living separately for a period of two years having separated on March 18, 2017 and have not co-habited as man and wife.
Chilala contended that the marriage had broken down irretrievably and that the pair had lived apart for a continuous period of at least two years immediately preceding the presentation of the petition.
“There is one child of the family now living, born on April 25, 2012. No other children now living have been born to the petitioner and the respondent during the same marriage except for Ebelly Molly Muzungu, a girl born to the petitioner on June 14, 2010 and Mulondwe Muzungu a boy born to the respondent on August 16, 2006 respectively,” Chilala said.
She added that no arrangements have been made or is proposed to be made between the parties for her support or the children of the family.
Chilala is now praying to the court that the said marriage be dissolved and that she may be granted custody of child and Muzungu should have access at reasonable times.
Chilala further prayed that Muzungu pays maintenance for the child of the family and that each party bears its own costs.
She also wants any other relief that the court may deem fit.
