FIC boss files for divorce againBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 28 Sep 2018
Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) Director General Mary Chirwa Tshuma has again filed a petition in the Lusaka High Court to dissolve her marriage with her husband Kudakwashe Tshuma, a pastor of Beam of Hope International Ministries, saying he has behaved in such a way that she can no longer live with him.
In May this year, Tshuma had filed for divorce, accusing her husband of being in a habit of threatening to kill himself and also having inappropriate affairs with other women but had, however, wholly discontinued the petition in June.
But on September 17, 2018, Tshuma again, filed a divorce petition in the Lusaka High Court, reiterating the submissions in her previous petition.
She stated that her husband had numerous inappropriate affairs with a number of women and that when confronted, he threatened to kill himself.
Tshuma stated that at one point, her husband had attempted to drink ‘Omo’ bleach, and at another time, attempted to throw himself into the swimming pool at their home in full view of neighbours and the house guard.
She stated that in March this year, after arriving home from a trip a day earlier than expected, she overheard her husband enticing another woman on phone, while masturbating, and when confronted, he claimed that the woman was his old girlfriend.
“On March 17, when the petitioner arrived home from a trip a day earlier than expected, before entering the main bedroom, she overheard the respondent while in a state of undress in a process of enticing another woman on phone, while masturbating by telling her that, ‘I want you now’ and he also asked where he could go and pick her up from. And that point the petitioner walked into the bedroom and the respondent became confused and dumbfounded. When consulted, the respondent claimed the woman he was talking to was an old girlfriend,” read the petition.
She stated that she thereafter moved out of the bedroom to the spare-bedroom and a week later her husband confronted her and grabbed her official phone and violently broke it.
“The petitioner ran outside the house, but the respondent pursued the petitioner with intent to beat or assault her in full view of the maid, guard and neighbours,” read the petition.
Tshuma stated that the threats by her husband to kill himself caused her anguish and mental distress on account that her previous husband had committed suicide.
She further stated that her husband was also confrontational with her children from her previous marriage, and as such, they lived in fear.
Tshuma further stated that her husband had also been dishonest with money.
Tshuma wants the court to dissolve the marriage and that each party bears their respective costs incidental to the proceedings, saying her husband has behaved in such a way that she can no longer live with him.
