  1. @Ee bumu. Exwife and he is this jealous!
    This happens when one thinks he owns the woman. We must revisit our marriage customs. Especially the lobola pricing

  2. And United Pungwas Of National Disaster (UPND) govt wants to do away with death penalty. I’m persuaded beyond doubt that the woman divorced the man for to display unparalleled nsange. This is usually referred to as “Tufilile munsenga” This is terrible especially to the family of the deceased. Sincere condolences to the family.
