Mary Magambo resists Kanganja’s attempts to impregnate her


WHILE 27-year-old Lusaka businessman John Kanganja desperately wants a child, his “wife” has refused to become pregnant because he has not paid bride price to formalise their marriage.

Kanganja, a resident of Garden House Compound has now sued his partner – 25-year-old Mary Magambo Ng’uni – a waitress at Hassan Restaurant and Take Away for divorce.

According to court documents, the two have been a couple for two years but have no child together.

During a hearing at the Kanyama Local Court in Lusaka yesterday, Kanganja submitted that he had decided to divorce Magambo because she had refused to get pregnant.

Kanganja told the court that he had no problem with paying Magambo’s bride price and formalising their marriage but wanted to begin by proving that she could bear children.

“I want a divorce because my wife is refusing to get pregnant, I will pay everything as soon as she gets pregnant otherwise I heard from one of her aunties that my wife is barren,” Kanganja told the court.

In her defense Magambo said she was only living with Kanganja because her parents had sent her away from home after spending a night out with him.

Magambo said despite sleeping out, she still respected marriage values and wished to get married in a proper fashion.

“I don’t want a wedding, I just want normal procedures followed that’s all, otherwise where do you first eat a sweet then say I will pay later,” asked Magambo.

In ruling on the matter, Kanyama Local Court Magistrate A. Michelo told the duo that there was no marriage between them.

Magistrate Michelo said Kanganja and Magambo were only cohabiting and not marriage.

The court advised Kanganja to follow proper marriage procedure do the right thing if he really loved Magambo.

The magistrate further urged the two to go their separate ways if they did not want marriage and stop wasting each other’s time.
