Mrs Zimba collapsing
Mrs Zimba collapsing

Naomi Mbewe, wife of Newstead Zimba collapsed shortly after the Lusaka Boma court granted the couple divorce.

Ms. Mbewe broke into tears and fell to the ground inside the court room shortly after the local Court Justice ruled that the family house located at Number 2 Nalikwanda Road, Woodlands will be owned by Mr. Zimba.

The court had earlier ruled that Ms. Mbewe will get the beauty training school she jointly owns with Mr. Zimba and a Nissan Xtrail, one of the two family vehicles.

The local Court Justice also allowed Mr. Zimba to keep custody of the couple’s youngest child while the two children aged 17 and 19 will choose whom they will stay with.

But a sobbing Ms. Mbewe interjected the Judgement arguing that it is unfair for Mr. Zimba to keep the family house while she gets the beauty training school which is now non-operational.

The court however advised Ms. Mbewe to appeal against the judgment if she is not satisfied.

Relatives, friends and well-wishers were on hand to help Ms. Mbewe to her feet and later drove her away.

She had dragged Mr Zimba to court demanding divorce citing his alleged promiscuous lifestyle.

Ms. Mbewe also alleged that Mr Zimba had the habit of beating her up in public, lacks respect for the matrimonial home, had numerous affairs with maids and was once diagnosed with an STI.

“He had a habit of sleeping around. I cannot continue living with this man. He suspected he had affairs with our maids. He also had an affair with an officer from the National Assembly including the Namibian Ambassador to Zambia at the time,” She told the court.

She added, “The defendant humiliates me in public by beating me up in the presence of my students at the school we used to run together. He has a short temper.”

Mr Zimba had filed in his submissions that he still regarded Ms Mbewe as his wife and hoped that the court could reconcile the couple.

“My marriage to the plaintiff is still valid. I pray that the court helps us to reconcile. All the allegations against me are total lies. I have loved her and loved her alone. During our 22 years of marriage, I treated her so well. I bought her five vehicles including a BMW,” Mr Zimba submitted.

The couple got married in 1993 and has three children.

Newstead Zimba served as cabinet Minister in the MMD administration under the late Dr. Chiluba and later served as Ambassador to Sweden in the Mwanawasa administration.

    • Told you , restrain from marrying zambian men

      Once they see a good catch, or you lead a British UK *** life of sleeping with them once a week which is recommended, they will divorce you

      If you refuse them, they divorce you. I am sorry to hear this, but come to Europe here men hardly cheat and they don’t force you, they respect the NO until you are ready

      Thanks

    • @ Mushota u are a lier, everywhere in the world, they good and bad people whether you agree with me or not. Let me say somthing about Europe where i was recently. I found good men of which i was impressed but i also met men who for better term i would say prostitutes. this man has 18 girl friends and non of them has an idea. there group is called the Big Lovers. this group consists of 32 men aged between 23 and 36. their aim is to simply to hook up ladies married or single, use them and dump them when apetit goes. Now Imagine 32 men with 4 girls each.
      everywhere u go, u will atleast find these things. In Zambia their serious men and cheaters just like any other continets.What am simply trying to says is that your judgement is misplaced and has no justification. I have never cheated on me

    • She found another woman in Mr Zimba’s life and grabbed the then MMD minister in 1993…and now Zimba goes for another younger woman…chances are that if you grab a man from another woman, he has to the potential to be grabbed by yet another woman-this is (and his kind) very unstable man…serious lesson to be learnt by our sisters out there concerning we men…

      Nubian is independent, but that would not absolve you from spoiling her with trinkets, surprise trips, presents etc Even when she can afford it herself.

      I’m old-fashioned that way. She in turn would make your (and any future offspring) comfort and happiness her primary responsibility – despite holding a CEO position in a Fortune 500 company.
      But I’m sure you know this.

  2. But you are the one who took the matter to court asking for a divorce.Divorce comes with consequences.The house you are crying over was obviously acquired by your foolish husband.Just keep the so called schooland work hard to acquire your own house as you should have done instead of grabbing other pipo’s husbands.

  3. Nothing one can say about this. Maybe the foundation of this marriage were wrong.

    On a different note, LT can you please check the use of pronouns “he”, “she”, “him”, “her”. These are not interchangeable. Be consistent with usage of pronouns to make reading your news pleasant to readers.

    Also make sure you use “has” and “have” in the right place. Example, ‘The couple got married in 1993 and has three children.’

  7. I think she lost the battle when she 1) revealed the STI about him 2) refused to reconcile.

    The men thought of themselves being subjected to a public outing this way. The older women (particularly bana cimbusa and alangizi) were flabergasted. Nicely-married middle aged professional women despise her for her husband-stealing.
    The younger more modern women envied her golddigging skills as she had hit pay dirt.

    My sympathies to the kid who will no doubt be used as a pawn in the childish games played by these 2 f00ls.

    • There is no such thing as husband stealing or snatching. Why is a man always given a free pass? Zimba was not an unwilling participant in this. In fact he was the decider. How can the whole big person be stolen?

  9. Why now. Is it because he is no long a minister? I expected that during the time Mr Zimba was a minister he used to move a lot on duty and would have been careless during that time. Now it doesnt reconcile to me that mr Zimba has just started to behave in that manar. If Mrs Zimba was tolarating this when this man was a minister and she cannot tolarate it now then there is some fish about Mrs Zimba.

    • Right. You took it for 22 years, have you just now discovered your husband’s errant ways?
      You were young enough to leave him 21 years ago and still had the potential to build a life and family for yourself. But the cars and being a ‘madam’ in Sweden was too big a prize to give up.

      I am normally supportive of women going through the courts and being given their fair dues in the divorce settlement. Did she even consider the effect of all this mud-slinging on the children? This is their father after all.

      Something about this one screams callous gold-digger. Plus I can’t abide people who insinuate themselves into established families and split them up.

  18. The problem was with Naomi.After she had used Mr Zimba , she wanted to dump him with a view of a new catch. When Mr Zimba was recalled from foreign service , she told him she could not come back with him to Zambia. Mr Zimba was at loss on how Naomi was now deserting him after having been the architect of his abandoning his older wife in the mid 1990s ( By the way this was on TV). In trying to keep the marriage which was falling because of a worsening financial situation of the Zimba’s , Mr Zimba has literally went to crawling to State House hoping to get another appointment to sustain him. Naomi being gold digger could not have any of broke Zimba and schemed ways of abandoning him. The judgement is fair. Mr Zimba acquired the house before the two married so she was not entitled to it.

ONE THING YOU WOMEN DO NOT REALSE IS THAT WOMEN ARE PRAYER WARRIORS. MOST OF US MARRIED WOMEN ARE ON OUR FEET DAY AND NIGHT PRAYING OVER OUR HOMES, CHILDREN AND HUSBANDS.. THAT IS POWERFUL…WE ARE BINDING EVERYTHING IN THE NAME OF JESUS. AND ONE OF THE ENEMIES WE ARE BINDING ARE YOU HUSBAND SNACHERS AND GIRLFRIENDS…AND WHEN WE ASK IN THE NAME OF JESUS, ALL IS POSSIBLE..AM SURE OUR GOOD LORD HAS ANSWERED THE FIRST WIFE PRAYERS.. (MHSRIP) IT MAY TAKE FOREVER BUT OUR GOD IS NOT A SLEEPING GOD..MY FELLOW PRAYING WIVES JUST KNOW THAT DON’T CEASE PRAYING ” A DELAY DOES NOT MEAN DENIED…HERE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE.

  25. Forgive Mushota, she is a hooker and gold digger in UK. She is saddened that one of her constituents has fallen into her own trap. Mrs Zimba wanted a house, period. Now that the house has escaped her, she resorts to fainting and attacking cameramen. I can still marry her and leave her with a hut I own in Shang’ombo once we divorce after she finds me with a young and fresh girl in bed.
    Mrs Zimba is a husband snatcher. When MMD came into power of which Newstead became home affairs minister, this lady saw gold and destroyed Newstead’s marriage. This incident was even captured on ZNBC when the former wife of Newstead fought with this lady who has just secured a divorce from Newstead. This is what you pay for being a gold digger. Newstead was attractive to her as a minister and ambassador.

  37. IT teaches this woman a lesson. let her be reminded that she stole Newstead from another humble old woman, with whom Newstead had suffered for over 30 years. Upon becoming minister in 1991, Newstead divorced his wife of many years because she was not good enough to appear with him in public. he chose this bitch that had been pushing for marriage and committing adultery with Newstead. Now it is her turn to feel how humble mrs Zimba felt. Not pitty. No tear for her.

In this case look at the big picture both Mr Zimba and Naomi are both at lose. The first wife’s heart had been bleeding with pain after she was dumped by Mr Zimba caused by Naomi. Do you really think they have been happy at all.. Clearly NO… People who do such inhuman deeds to their fellow human beings trust me do not have peace with their conscious… They just continue to pretend that they are happy to the world…

    • @Mulenga Chanda you are so right. My mother died in a similar way because of the husband snatcher lady my father married forcing my mother out of our home. My fathers wife was so unhappy and became an alcoholic and it eventually killed her, or maybe the depression did. She and her family plotted in so many ways to get our family property and she thought he would die before her, but her fate came first! Ladies stop grabbing peoples husband and ruin the lives of their children. Make your own money and get a single man please!
