A 16-WEEK journey in the Muvi Television reality show, Ready for Marriage Extraordinary, came to an end on Saturday night with the calm and collected Precious Amukusana getting the K90 million prize money.

The reality entered Season Three in July this year featuring 18 prostitutes or commercial sex workers drawn from all the nine provinces of Zambia. Amukusana beat five other contestants with the ever joyful Mwamba Hangolo tight on her heels, collecting K70 million for being in second position. In third position was Muleya Munkombwe who pocketed K50 million.

Dramatically, both Muleya and Mwamba were initially rejected and eliminated but were brought back in the redemption vote.

Controversial contestant Jane Mutale, who was always enjoying the top slot found herself on a not-winning position, occupying the fourth position while both Precious Kawinga and Sandra Muyaba who seemingly showed good character on the screen, surprisingly got the fifth and six position respectively.

Amukusana said she was just happy to reach the finals, and owed it to God and the viewers who kept her in the competition, which is the brain child of late Muvi Tv director of programmes Augustine Lungu.
“Initially, I came for a competition but today, I’ve been turned in a real woman, I will never get back to the old life,” she said. And two contestants who were not in the finals, Tina Lusangu and Ester Phiri, were granted wedding sponsorship by Muvi TV.

Master Chimbala, who took over the presentation of the programme which is in third season from Mr Lungu said the two plan to get married in November. He said Tina will be given a wedding dress while the groom will have the suit.

The other contestants were Flavia Wakunguma, Sharon Phiri, Esnart Mwanza, Standwa Kaonga, Oxcilia Nkoloma, Alice Muyuni, Isabel Mwansa, Precious Kawinga, Conslater Mwaka, Anna Shumba and Jacklyne Kachingwe.

And speaking during the function, Minister of Local Government, Early Childhood and Environmental Protection Nkandu Luo said time has come for people to change their ways of earning a livelihood. She said women who are into prostitution should take a leaf from those who came out in broad day light to denounce the practice.

At the end of the show, Mr Chimbala paid tribute to the Mr Lungu for being behind the programme. Mr Lungu was a National Arts Council of Zambia (NAC) Ngoma Award-winning actor who also served as Lusaka Theatre Club chairman besides being a gifted television presenter.

    The underdogs among the six contestants carried the day.Iam not supprised infact iam happy that P.A won the top prize.She was the only one who was genuine and showed true transformation.The others just went there for the money.As for Jane Mutale,her lies finally caught up with her.Iam certain the enstraged husband is having the last laugh.

    Very unfair game how do you change rules just to fix Jane? Even if you made her lose, one thing is clear she was the most popular contestant countrywide.

    I beg to differ: the change is temperoal without their souls not being transformed..they must be convicted in thier conscience and repent of the past…character is character weather with or without money,avoid being cheated and misled..mind you those women have mate different men before and that has a bearing on their marriage life.Any one marring them should be aware of a comparison fact which may in turn work to their disadvantage…the issue can only be contented by The NEW BIRTH…God help this Adulterous generation!!! Remember feelings are part of the flesh which can never be born again!!! Shalom!

    A step in the right direction. As a nation,ie church leaders, govt and non-governmental org, we need a practical compassionate ministry, to help us reach out to the broken-hearted, the rejected, abandoned, and less-fortunate.With proper rehabilitation centres for prostitutes, drug-addicts,prisoners..etc, done in an atmosphere of love and respect for the individual person, many lives have been saved. My work in a number of African Countries( in hospitals, schools, prisons, and communities) has taught me a lesson, that Human life is sacred.

    Why are reformed people still called prostitutes or sex workers?

    A correction needs to be made.

    One more question, are some of the people commenting here male prostitutes?

    Amaule with a reality show, this is a new Zambia and may God bless y’all. I bet 100% of these maules are HIV positive so men think twice before you make a move on these highly celebrated bana Mangwengwes. More AIDS for free on TV.

    Congrats Precious, You were down to earth and truthful .Your life story was touching after the demise of both parents. Please seek God’s guidance in your new life.
    My appeal to the new government, lets find a way of curbing the rampant immorality in our nation by looking at the root causes like the nakedness that  we are made to see everyday in buses, streets, shops etc. Some dressing is meant for night clubs and bars but is brought to the sight of all. Dress code can do. Even office wear is no longer there. Something must be done. The gender ministry must help us, we are tired of seeing pornography everywhere. ATAAA!!!! TOILETS !!!!
