Court dissolves 30-year-old marriage over wife’s pregnancy for the Holy Spirit

NEWS DIGEST – A man, simply identified as Claver Simoonga, has divorced his wife, Maureen Macha, 38, of Kabanana in Zambia.

According to him, Macha has been denying him his conjugal rights from July.

Mr Simoonga told the court that a prophet had instructed his wife not to have sex with him because she was pregnant for the Holy Spirit.

“Problems in our marriage started in 2018 when my wife started going to some prophet who told her that she should not be sleeping with me on the pretext that she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit.

“My wife stopped performing her duties and started listening to the prophet more than me,” Mr Simoonga said.

He said Macha used to tell him that she needed to consult the prophet every time he asked for sex from her.

The couple got married in 1990 and has two children together.
