  1. Very sad turn of events. Although we find it absurd to state the husband’s job and details in a case involving the wlfe and another woman. Upnd way of thinking

  2. The institution of marriage… where was the CEO when implements were being issued and slots apportioned? Useless husband…

  3. Bemba lady cannot handle polygamy. Me too don’t support it. But her reaction led her to commit the ultimate crime Murder. Seems most Tonga ladies are immune to polygamy, please people leave it to the experts. Only a Tonga bull is strong to handle polygaym pressures. Not worth it now she’ll have to spend the rest of her life behind bars. It was better to leave the marriage & enjoy life. More women need to be empowered economically.
