A MANAGER at Profit Plus USAID has filed for divorce in the Lusaka High Court claiming that his wife, Belinda Magrate Jones, a sales executive at Tele Plus Communications, has exhibited acts of infidelity.
Mwangala Munalula stated that his marriage of eight years had broken down irretrievably as he had caught his wife with her boyfriend Joseph Maseko, who when asked openly told him that, that was the man she loved and wanted to marry.
Mr Munalula said his wife also posted on her mobile phone/whatsApp picture of herself and a Hot FM DJ “Chi” which picture went online for several days and when questioned, she said she had male friends and boyfriends because he did not know how to love a woman.
“The respondent has no respect for me as she belittles me and even shouts at me as if she is the head of the house, she has no love for me,” Mr Munalula said in his marriage petition for divorce.
The petitioner said his wife had exhibited adulterous behaviour, especially on her birthday, August 28 this year when she went out with his friend’s wife and refused to return home despite him following her at Las Vegas Night Club, running away from him and only returned home the next day without offering convincing reasons.
“The marriage has broken down irretrievably as the respondent has behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to continue living with the respondent due to irreconcilable differences shown,” he said.
The petitioner prayed that the court could hear him on the custody of children on grounds that his wife did not have time for him and the children.
