A LUSAKA woman stunned the Matero local court when she narrated how she found pictures of various naked women in her husband’s phone. This was a case in which Tamara Mwila, 29, of Mandevu Township sued Rony Nkomana, 40, of the same locality for divorce. Facts before the court were that the two have been married since 2011 but dowry was not paid and the couple has two children.
The couple stayed in harmony for two months only until Nkomana started abusing alcohol and going home late on the pretext that he was working. Mwila said on one occasion, she took her husband’s phone so that she could call her mother, but was shocked to find nude pictures of his girlfriends.
She went on to discover text and WhatsApp messages sent by her husband asking his girlfriends to send him naked pictures so he could have good dreams. But Nkomana disputed his wife’s statement and said he would not want to be divorced as he tolerated Mwila even when she squeezed his private parts whenever they had misunderstandings. When asked by the court if he had girlfriends, Nkomana denied the allegations and that he did not possess naked images in his phone.
In passing judgement, Matero Local court senior magistrate, Lewis Mumba, sitting with Ms Pauline Newa, granted the couple divorce. “The court has found a number of problems such as lack of communication, commitment and violence, therefore, divorce is granted,” he said.
