court

A CLERGYMAN of Harvest Ministries in Lusaka brought the Boma Court to a stand-still when his wife narrated how he chained her to their bed and beat her with a pick-handle.
Lillian Kangala, 41, of Mtendere, recounted how her husband Isaac Shimutende, 43, also of Mtendere got home from work in a rage and accused her of having sexual relations with his nephew.
The two got married in 1992 and have six children.
Speaking before justices Davies Mpundu and Miyanda Banda in a case in which she sued Shimutende for divorce, Kangala told the court that one day her husband came home fuming, accusing her of cheating on him.
She said her husband pulled her by the neck led her into the house where he started beating her.
“He ordered me to confess to a relationship which never existed,” she said,
She expressed disappointment that her pastor husband could behave in such a violent manner.
Kangala further told the court that Shimutende is a violent and promiscuous man, much to the dismay of the gallery.
Kangala said Shimutende is having an affair with a young church member, adding that he hardly spends nights at home.
She said Shimutende wants to cover up his lewd behaviour by accusing “me of having an affair with his nephew,” she lamented.
And in his statement, Shimutende said when he returned home from Mozambique, his children told him they had caught Kangala having sex with their cousin.
Shimutende told the court that because of that, he now doubts whether the twins they have are his.
He pleaded with the court not to grant divorce because he still loves his wife despite what has happened between them.
Passing judgment, the court granted divorce and ordered Shimutende to pay Kangala K15,000 as compensation.
The court also ordered Shimutende to pay K400 monthly child maintenance.

  2. The court were wrong to pass judgement like that despite the man still loving his wife. The man is the head of the house, then does the Christian bible allow that. I have learned one thing, the government of the day is protecting women than men. What if the woman start suffering because the age is also going up.

  3. The court was too lenient on the husband who is nothing but a thug of a Pastor. That thug should’ve been jailed for 5 years for assault and for false imprisonment of his wife.

  4. Why is this “man of God” being punished?

    Government should just give him 200 millions to go and build a huge Tabernacle with his friends!

  5. Women, those two married too early. Its the man missed his youthful life. Age gap in marriage shud be 5 to 10. In that way the lady doesn’t become but big headed. Thinking they are agements with husband. Divorce among the clergymen is the worst thing to happen. What will they preach! Their lives are ruined. Ask Pastor Pule. Since his divorce. The man is s shadow of himself.

  6. Am sure the Pastor was trying to hide his promiscuous behavior.
    Adultery in some of these Tuntemba Churches is a normal thing to indulge in by Pastors, worse for them is for a Christian to Drink Alcohol.
