Consequences of Marrying Young Girls: Frank Mutubila Finally Granted Divorce

Filed under: Breaking News,Statements |

mbwiliThe Lusaka High Court has granted former Zambian Ambassador to Italy, Frank Mutubila divorce from his wife, Evelyn.

The decision will however be enforced, if there are no issues or objections raised by each party of the couple or any other person in three weeks time.

In this matter, Mr. Mutubila had asked the court to dissolve his marriage on account of his wife, Evelyn’s alleged unreasonable behaviour.

Mr Mutubila said while he served as Ambassador in Italy, the respondent did not play her role as a wife of an envoy, as she was usually away pursuing her studies.

He also says while in Holland, his wife notified him that she was pregnant after undergoing In Vitro Fertilisation -IVF- procedure, which he however disowned because he was not consulted by his wife over the procedure.

Mr Mutubila has also told the court that he doubts if his wife conceived using the IVF procedure, as it could not be done without his consent.

But in his judgment, Judge, Mwiinde Siavwapa has observed that the differences between Mr Mutubila and his wife are irreconcilable, adding that their marriage has broken down irretrievably.

Judge Siavwapa has said he is satisfied that no right thinking person, who knows what Evelyn did would expect Mr Mutubila to continue living with her.
