A woman from Livingstone, Zambia, has divorced her husband of 11 years after she admitted to having an affair with a man she met on Facebook.

Prudence Wachama, who described her relationship with her husband, Presco Lilayi, as that of brother and sister, said he treated her like a slave in her own home.

She sued him for divorce in Livingstone Local court A3, where the court heard that the couple got married in 2010 and that Lilayi paid K4,500 as dowry.

Lost feelings

Wachama told the court that she had lost feelings for her husband and that he did not care about her well-being even when she was sick.

She also accused him of having text messages from other women on his phone.

She said:

“It is true I went to a lodge with a man I met on Facebook. We merely met. We discussed matters that were affecting my marriage. I am tired of pretending like things are alright in this marriage when they are not.”

She said she was no longer friends with the same man and that she had forgiven her husband for his behavior, but they could not live together as husband and wife.

Wachama’s father, Moses Wachama, supported his daughter’s decision to end the marriage.

Still loves his wife

However, Lilayi said he still loved his wife and did not want the marriage to end.

He admitted that he had another woman in his life and that there were a lot of text messages on his phone, but he said that was a thing of the past.

“I don’t want the marriage to end because I will not be able to look after our children alone. The only reason she wants to leave is because of the same man she is having an affair with whom she met on Facebook,” he said.

Divorce granted

Senior Local Court Magistrate Fredrick Mainza granted divorce and ordered Lilayi to pay K300 as child maintenance.

He said the marriage had broken down irretrievably and there was no love between the couple.

He advised them to respect each other and co-parent their children peacefully.
