A LUSAKA woman has been puzzled by the continued appearance of pus on her husband’s pants.
Timmy Chilali, 38, a cross border driver from Garden House married Mervis Mumba, 32, from Garden Park in 2007 and the two lived in harmony until 2011 when Chilali became promiscuous.
Mumba and Chilali got married after the latter paid K500 of the K1,500 bride price and the two did not have any child together but each had a child from previous relationships.
According to Mumba, her husband left home most of the time pretending to go for business before it was later discovered that he was having extra-marital affairs.
“The first time he lied that he was going to Kabangwe, the second time he said he was going to Chongwe. Sometimes he would lie that he was in South Africa yet he was just within the country with that girl seated there,” Mumba said pointing at another woman in court.
Mumba said in 2013 she was confused when she started finding white substance on her husband’s pants which at first she thought was semen.
She later on took one of his underwears to her in-law parents who later called Chilali for advice to go for a test.
But in defence, Chilali said the problem was as a result of not having a child together as his wife started demanding for children in a manner that indicated that he was impotent.
“I had a child with my first wife and she also had one from another man but due to her persistent provoking I was forced to impregnate outside marriage,” Chilali said.
He disputed allegations that he was not giving his wife money, defending himself that he had at some point advised his wife to be patient and wait for God’s time but she could not understand.
In passing judgment, Kanyama local court senior Magistrates, Ackim Phiri and Daniel Phiri adjourned the matter to a latter date and warned the grandmother to one of Chilali’s girlfriends who was before court to desist from inciting people to do bad things.
