43 year old polygamist

Fear of being ditched by one his wives had led a 43 year old polygamist to do the unthinkable: he has axed the said wife to death.

Subsequently, Atrina decided to formalise the divorce by approaching the Bbilili Local Court in the Kaloma district of Southern Zambia.

But to Atrina’s surprise, Sungababwa refused to accept the summon when she served him on Saturday, reports the Zambian Observer.
