…He spends salary on alcohol, denies paternity of our second child —Woman
A carpenter lamented before a local court in Ndola, Zambia that his wife, Bridget Kabwe, had the habit of tying up his manhood with a piece of wire after beating him severely each time they differed.
Jackson Sichamba, 45, made this revelation during a hearing in a divorce case initiated by his wife, Bridget Kabwe. Bridget, 33, brought the matter before Kabushi Local Court to dissolve their marriage of 14 years.
Report by the Zambian Observer had that Jackson and Bridget had lived well when they got married but problems started when she began stopping him from going out to drink.
He said whenever he got paid his wife would grab his entire salary leaving him with nothing, complaining that each time he went against his wife’s advice not to drink, she would beat him mercilessly and tie wires around his manhood.
“My wife is a violent woman, each time I come back from drinking, she used to beat me and tie my manhood with wires,” he said.
But Bridget testified that Jackson had a habit of misusing money. She said each time he got paid, he would disappear and only return home after he had squandered all the pay on beer.
“Whenever he got paid, he would disappear for more than a month leaving the children and me to starve. He would only return home after all his money is finished.
“When I approached him, he was furious and started insulting me and telling my child that I was a prostitute and that the other child was not his son,” she said.
The court dissolved their marriage on grounds that the wife had lost interest in it and said the man did not respect his wife and that there was no transparency in their marriage
