Zambia prisons commissioner general Percy Chato has ditched his wife of 21 years, Irene Sichikwenkwe in preference to a concubine only identified as Christabel.
Before the Kabwe local court on Tuesday was Chato who accused his wife of using witchcraft and that he has not had a good relationship with her. His newly found concubine who is a mother of two children was also in court to ensure that the man denies his wife and the three children.
He also accused her of having multiple sexual affairs with junior prisons officers including his personal driver Peter Mulenga and added that he last had sexual inter course with her on 23rd October last year.
But officers from the prisons service have disclosed that Chato started dating Christabel from as way back as 2012 and has even bought her some property.
Meanwhile Chato is said to have stunned the court when he disclosed that even President Edgar Lungu is aware of his promiscuity.
