This came up in court after his wife Cecilia Chileshe, 40, sued him for reconciliation.
In his defence, Mwansa told the court that his wife has no respect for their marriage because she charges him to have sex with her.
“My wife has been charging me for having sex with her from the time I lost my job and it is the reason we have been having problems in our marriage,” Mwansa said.
