“My husband is not fertile, tabafyala aba mwecilye”, she told the court.
A 28 year old woman of Mansa has told the court that she allowed the young brother to her husband to impregnate her twice in 5 years because her husband is not fertile. Speaking in court last Friday, Felistus Chanda a teacher by profession (though not yet deployed) said since she got married in 2016, her husband Rick Kapambwe 32, failed to make her pregnant forcing his relatives to advise her to sleep with his young brother Rocky Kapambwe 26, to have children on his behalf of which she agreed because her man was crying for children.
This is in a matter in which Felistus a Mansa woman in Luapula sued her hubby a farmer for divorce on grounds that he is demanding for more children when he is infertile.
“I love my husband but the problem is that he is forcing me to have a 3rd child when himself is infertile. He knows this because doctors examined us both in 2018 and he was found infertile and that’s how his close relatives encouraged me to start sleeping with his young brother whom I was keeping and despite being younger than me, he managed to sleep with me 84 times and gave me 2 children in 5 years.
I was recording. But now i don’t want to continue sleeping with his young brother because he takes long to get satisfied such that he takes about 1 hour 10 minutes making love to me and sometimes i faint!”, she complained. “Your honour I feel its unacceptable for someone who is not my husband to sleep with me to an extent of making me faint”.
Felistus said she would rather divorce than continuing sleeping with another man who is not her husband. “Its better i divorce and get married to another man. Abana nkabashila”.
