26 years old Gertrude Ngoma, from Ndola, Zambia, has taken her 28 years old boyfriend Herbert Salaliki, father of her child who she claims had promised to marry her to court and lunched a legal proceedings against him.
According to Mwebantu. The fed-up fiancée has taken him to court to demand he outline his plans for the future after becoming tired of waiting, as well as doubting his loyalty after catching him texting another woman. He has never been serious, that is why I brought him to court because I deserve to know the way forward and our future,’ she told the court
In his Defence, Salaliki said that he wants to marry Ngoma but can’t afford to, and claimed that they don’t communicate because she doesn’t give him enough attention.
The willing bride told the court that she now feels Herbert, 28, is not serious about their relationship, despite him already issuing a dowry payment. But Herbert defended his decision by saying that he’s not financially stable enough to afford a wedding.
He also said he was reluctant to get married, blaming Gertrude for not giving him the attention he thought he deserved.
Judge Evelyn Nalwize, presiding over the case at Kabushi Local Court, advised Gertrude to sue for breach of marriage contract but said the authorities could do little more to intervene.
The magistrate instead ruled that the two should attempt to reconcile their differences out of court.
