    6 month is too little. This is very bad habit to our ladies who we should share love with.

    Even Given Lubinda should be investigated for failing and refusing to provide water to Libala Chalala – water works! I thought that amounts to genocide coz people are dying from water borne diseases and backborne diseases due to pushing drums from house which he is now selling to the area next without water.

    Women, our women learn to sit down and solve issues. There’s nothing that can not be solved on the table. Look what you have landed yourself in. Shame!!!

    She must have been in an abusive marriage. Men learn to show your payslips to your wives and avoid drinking at spending nights out.
    Women learn to respect your husbands even if you get more money than them. If you can’t live together then get a divorce.

    Women let us be submissive to our husbands for this is what the bible has said. Whether they re drunkard or what let us not allow every jim and jack to know what is happening in our homes, some of these houses you admire they live on salted porredge and water but when they have the eat. And you find that they live happily. Men also ought to love their wives wheather they are mad or not but when it comes to Gender based violence we must not even take time to report to the relevant authorities remember no insults, no name calling and what have you. God bless your marriages.

    He is luck that she poured porridge on his face. It time men released women can react to stupid action man take.What would do if your husband takes K3.5m meant for school fees to his girl to pay for her rentals and buy Brazilian hair
