LUSAKA resident of Makeni Simoson has sued his wife of three years in the Kanyama local court for refusing to kiss him constantly.
Boniface Mwansa, 30, a self-employed plumber of the mentioned location, has dragged his wife, Esther Lungu, 26, a maid of the same locality to court for divorce because she has
constantly refused to kiss him when they are making love.
Mwansa told the presiding magistrate, Mubukwanu Matalaka that it’s been five months since he last kissed his wife despite paying K2000 as dowry and having his marriage
recognized under traditional law.
Mwansa said he does not understand why his lawfully wedded wife doesn’t want to kiss him whenever they are making love.
“ni dabwa akana Kuni kissinga mukazi wanga lyonse nga namweba, futi chimbi nchakuti nangu fye ku bedroom pakuti tukumani niku lwisha, ninaka nga ni chupo nachipwe fye
nsangeko umbi kuti wadabwa ali kasha kumbi,” Mwansa said.
He added that his wife was full of herself to the extent of refusing to wash his clothes because she works a better job Than him.
In her defense Lungu made the court laugh as she did not deny the allegations.
She said her husband was a drunkard who does not wash his mouth and that he smells whenever his from unblocking suwer systems Lungu said she tried to buy him tooth brushes and toothpaste for her husband to use but he refuses to do so.
“vo vama boyfriend ku side ni boza, aba bamuna ni ba doti MA days yano, pe Tina funana a benzo samba mushe mushe Nam kamwa benzo suka manje apa Kaya Nima bize,
otherwise ba nunkha I cant kiss such a man,”Sh said.
Lungu said that when making love it’s easier because she can wash her husbands genitals before the holy act.
“pokumana si problem kaili Nima ba kilina but mkamwa chivuta because Bama kamba ati ba chedwa ku MA piece work kwabo futi bamakamba ati ba zani menya,” she said.
When it was time for judgement, magistrate Matalaka consulted from both families to find out if this marriage had a future and asked the couple to seat and reconsider their decision.
The court further told the couple to invite elders in their families to talk to them and find a better way than ending their marriage.
