Former Seventh Day Adventist church pastor Victor Haangala is seeking to dissolve his 35-year-old marriage with Shelly Makaye Haangala in the Lusaka High Court.

Haangala, who is media personality Luyando Wood’s father, is also a consultant for the Expanded Church Response.

According to his petition for dissolution of marriage, the couple has been on separation for two years because their marriage had “broken down irretrievably”.

Haangala resides in Ndola whilst Shelly resides in Lusaka’s Kabulonga area.

The clergyman states that he has engaged his wife Shelly for the possibility of reconciliation but they have not been able to meet persons that are qualified to help them reconcile.

Since their marriage on October 24, 1982 the duo have four children together.

Following Shelly’s consent to the divorce, Haangala wants the High Court to dissolve their marriage and each party to bear its own costs.
