Accountant sues police officer for accusing him of sleeping with his wifeBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 2 Jul 2018
An accountant in Lusaka has dragged his neighbour, a police officer, to court demanding K300,000 as damages for accusing him of sleeping with his wife.
Bruce Mwamba, an accountant at JNMA Chartered Accountants is seeking for an injunction and damages for defamation saying his character has been put in disrepute among neighbours, family members and clients as the result of the accusations.
In a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court, Thursday, Mwamba stated that he resided at the same plot in Kabwata Site and Service with the defendant, Sitali Muyunda, a police officer at Zambia police service.
“The Plaintiff is an accountant with JNMA Chartered Accountants and ordinarily resides in Kabwata site and service. The Defendant is a police officer in Zambia Police Service and resides in Kabwata Site and Service. The Defendant on various occasions accused the Plaintiff in presence of people that “this chap sleeps with my wife”, a fact which is not true,” read the statement of claim.
Mwamba disclosed that on May 1, Muyunda threw his wife’s clothes towards his house in full view of his children and girlfriend saying “go and continue sleeping together you idiots”.
“The Defendant heightened the accusation to the Plaintiff that he sleeps with his wife on May 1, 2018 when he packed the wife’s clothes and in full glare of many people including his children, the Plaintiff’s children and girlfriend of many years and threw them towards the Plaintiff’s house. “Go continue sleeping together you idiots,” the statement of claim read further.
“The Plaintiff’s attempt to pacify the situation was unheeded as the Defendant now shouted on top of his voice insults in Chinyanja relating to the Plaintiff’s mother’s private parts in the presence of grandchildren.”
Mwamba stated that Muyunda’s accusations against him were unfounded and there was no intimate relationship between his wife and him or any of his family members.
He stated that his character had been put in disrepute among neighbours, family members and clients, some of whom witnessed the accusation while others had been told.
Mwamba claims for an order of interim injunction restraining the defendant from insulting and accusing him of sleeping with his wife, damages for defamation of character amounting to K300,000 and incidental costs.
