A Mukushi based Zambian man named Gideon Simwanza, an employee of Zamtel has accused the District Education Standard Officer (DESO) Mr Victor Simufwi of grabbing his wife (Idah Nankamba – a teacher within Mkushi) from him. According to his Facebook post, Mr Simwanza claims the Mkushi DESO has finally succeeded in snatching his wife from him, whom he said he has been with since 1998 or for 20 years.
But social media users have spported the move Nankamba has taken to leave her abusive husband for another man. One of the users names Evans Nshimbi wrote:” Leave that criminal for good madam teacher u have found solace and keep ur new angel warm.” Another female user named Mercy Navile wrote: “Beautiful u are, u don’t deserve to b humiliated by that devil hiding in the name of a husband!!!” See screenshot below:
But according to Mr Simwanza’s relative who declined to be named, the man (Mr Simwanza) has been abusing his wife for more than 13 years now by going out with many women, beating her and even chasing her from their house
“Yes, I can confirm that Madam Idah Nankamba my mlam is no longer with this man. He is my relative but I can disclose to you that he has been abusing his wife for more than 13 years now to the extent that in 2009/2010 they went on separation and she even got a transfer from Mkushi to Nakonde at Ntindi Basic School just to runaway from her abusive husband. In short, what I am telling you is that Mr Simwanza has been abusing his wife to the extent of wanting to kill her. So we are glad as a family to the man that his first wife has finally divorced him”, said a family source who pleaded not to be named for fear of being beaten by Mr Simwanza.
