According to a Daily Mail report, Gertrude Ngoma, 26, from Ndola sued her boyfriend Herbert Salaliki, 28, the father of her child. She claims he broke his promise to marry her.

Ms. Ngoma brought the case to the court to demand from him about his plans for her long-term. The fed-up fiancee also said she was tired of waiting and doubting his loyalty after catching him texting another woman.

“He has never been serious, that is why I bought him to court because I deserve to know the way forward and our future,” she told the court according to local media outlet Mwebantu.

But Mr. Salaliki said he wants to marry his fiancee after 8 years being together; however, he still cannot afford it. He also said they do not communicate anymore because she does not give him enough attention.

The woman feels her partner is not serious about their relationship despite giving her already a dowry payment.

In Zambia, men give lobola or “appreciation fee” to the family of their fiancée as a sign that they will look after their wife. 

Presiding Judge Evelyn Nalwize advised the woman to sue him for breach of marriage contract. However, she still encouraged authorities to do more to intervene and reconcile them.
