A 22-YEAR-OLD married woman shocked a Local Court in Lusaka when she admitted making love with her boyfriend on matrimonial bed while her husband was at work.
Namatama Likolo was testifying in a case in which her husband, Sipupe Mayamba, 25, a Security Guard of old Kanyama compound sued Sam Kamunu, 26, also a Security guard of the same compound for adultery.
Mayamba told Senior Court Magistrate Daniel Phiri sitting with Magistrates Sarah Nyendwa and Ackim Phiri at Kanyama Local Court that when he found Kamunu’s phone number in his wife’s phone. On May 16, 2016, he dialled the number and gave his wife to talk to the owner who turned out to be Kamunu.
Mayamba further said that at one time when he was knocking off he found Kamunu at the door of his house.
In defence, Kamunu said that on May 15, he received a phone call on private number from Likolo who threatened to kill him after exchanging bitter words.
He denied committing adultery with Likolo whom he said was his in-law because she had a child with his younger brother. Likolo said that Mayamba was her husband while Kamunu was her boyfriend.
She testified that Kamunu was her boyfriend since 2008 while she was in the village and that when they met in September 2015, they made love while she was carrying a five months pregnancy for Mayamba.
She revealed that in March 2016 Kamunu started following her at her matrimonial home and that they made love several times while Mayamba was at work.
Magistrate Phiri said that Kamunu knew that Likolo was married when they met.
He said that Likolo was careless because she was making love with Kamunu on the matrimonial bed.
He ordered Kamunu to compensate Mayamba with K10, 000 with initial payment of K1, 500 followed by monthly instalments of K500.
