Court restrains police officer to visit ex-wife

Headlines Court restrains police officer to visit ex-wife


IN A typical case of love gone sour, a Lusaka policeman has been threatening to shoot his former wife after the two broke up.
Idah Phiri 34, of Chazanga narrated in the Matero local court that she fears for her life and that of her daughter because her former husband Philip Mwanza 39, of Matero Township has also been threatening to slash her throat and break her jaw.
Phiri sued Mwanza for restraining order over threats. The case was heard before magistrate Lewis Mumba. The couple who divorced eight years ago have one child together.
“Mwanza has been monitoring my movements. Sometimes he would come to my office and start tearing pictures on my wall and insult me in front of my workmates. He even refuses to pay tuition fees for her his daughter,” she said.
She wondered why he monitors her when he has re-married and has children with his new wife.
“I want him to stop interfering with my life. He claims he wants me to refund him for all the money he spent sending me to college when we were married or else he will shoot me,” Phiri said.
Mwanza said Phiri is an ungrateful woman as she does not appreciate what he did for her by sending her to school to further her education.
“It’s not true that I have been threatening to kill her. The thing is that I am an officer and I move with the gun everywhere I go,” he said.
The court granted a restraining order and warned of an arrest for contempt of court if he went 100 metres near Phiri.



    • The ldiot wants a refund and yet he had been having a deep every single night! Does he believe that he owned the woman? Please let go of her and move on.

  1. Chipata chaps what is the problem? The mice you eat have disturbed your thinking! Iwe Phiri, leave that woman alone and concentrate on your new partner. Phiri, never use state weapon to harass your former wife. It seems Phiri has not forgotten about the former wife.

  2. I think the former wife is better than the current one in all disciplines, that is why he can’t believe someone else has her.

  3. Just charge him K250 for every sexual round you did with him from courtship to the last day you divorced. Include K30 per week for washing his clothes, K25 per day for preparing his food, K15 per day for cleaning the house and K50 miscellenous cost per month. The total amount will surpase what he spent on you for your college he is claiming. He can even pay you some balance.
    Men are ungrateful

  4. This silly cop should reported to relevant authorities, including his employers, the Police for threatening violence which is a criminal offence.. He should be kicked out of Zambia Police…

  5. Freddy you have a point, threatening to shoot somebody is a criminal offence. The ***** got away easy just because she has a child with him. So, this f00lish cop thought the ex-wife will be jobless forever after divorcing her and now that she is looking more successful than the current wife he is envious and regrets leaving her.
    Bwana cop, it is over and you have no right to bother the ex-wife and if she so wishes she should even remarry. That kind of behaviour is actually contrally to the training that this cop received.
