A MAN of Garden House told the Lusaka Local Court how he caught his wife putting charms on her genitals, much to his shock.
Charles Mfungo,33, told Senior Court Magistrate Ackim Phiri sitting with Magistrates Sarah Nyendwa and Daniel Phiri at Kanyama Local Court that he was surprised one day when he found his wife applying charms to her private parts which she had earlier said was for her porridge.
This is in a case in which Mfungo sued his wife, Edina Tembo, 31, for divorce.
The two got married in 2007 and have no children.
Mfungo further told the court that all was well until 2010 when the father of Tembo’s children started phoning her.
He explained that he tried to change Tembo’s phone number but still the two continued to communicate.
“The other day I was shocked when I caught my wife red handed putting charms on her private parts,” he said
Mfungo produced the charms in court as evidence and Tembo admitted owning the charms.
He said that the relatives of Tembo claimed that he was impotent when they differed over the phone he broke to stop her from communicating with her former husband.
Mfungo further said that Tembo on many occasions refused to make love saying she had no appetite for sex.
In defence, Tembo said that problems started in 2010 because Mfungo did not want the father of her children to communicate with her.
She explained that she refused to make love because she had body pains after Mfungo beat her over the phone calls she was making to her former husband.
Magistrate Phiri found Tembo to be unfaithful and advised to change because the father of her children would continue to cause problemsfor her.
He granted the couple divorce without compensation but property acquired together to be shared equally.
