Miles Sampa faces divorce

Former PF  Matero member of parliament Miles Sampa’s wife Mwika has filed for divorce in the Lusaka High Court after the couple has been on separation for over two years.

Mwika Mwenechanya Sampa, an economist at the Bank of Zambia (BOZ), who was lawfully married to Sampa on April 14, 2007 at St Ignatius Church in Lusaka, stated that their marriage of 11 years had broken down irretrievably.

She stated that the couple at the beginning of November 2015, mutually agreed that Sampa, the former commerce deputy minister, moves out of the matrimonial home and have since lived apart.

Mwika asked the court to grant her sole custody of the child of the family with Sampa to be allowed reasonable access.

She also asked the court to order that she continues residing in the matrimonial house and a further order for property settlement.

Mwika proposed that each party bears their own legal costs for the proceedings and prayed that the marriage be dissolved as her husband had consented that a decree nisi (temporary divorce)be granted.

    Miles played wrong when he was in power. Readers of Watchdog do not forget the lady found dead and Sampa was directly related to that girl?

      Look at the period of the seperation,it coincides with when our brother was jobless.Sometimes in fact often times women get frustrated leaving with “john solye ubwali” but i have also come across cases where the man fails to manage his new life as an unemployed man and feels for his ego and pride and eventually everything spills into his home.But remember breathen it is written that a man shall leave his father’s house and find himself a wife,their are financial conotations in that statement and if you are christian you should agree with me that that the bugger gotta have a crib either he is paying rent or owns it and the sissy aint gonna eat the house she has to be fed and clothed after her sins in the garden of Eden.

    Miles is actually a gentleman. He left the house for the wife and child when others would have fought hard to retain both and send the woman onto the streets. In turn, he has regular access to his child (may be some benefits from the mother too). 
    I think that is how divorces should be conducted and Mr Kilometres has shown us the civilised way!

    When a woman has money there can rarely be a marriage.

      In any case a marriage can be many things women with money can respect a man who is a husband and friend, a woman can also stay in a marriage 99.9% where the man has money to take care of the family but what we don’t know is the happenings behind closed doors.
      A woman yes can find it even easier to leave a man who might be strangling to make it in life mostly its via comparison eg how others are doing but that does not mean it won’t be a traumatic period for both parties. 
      A woman who can stand on her own 2 feet can also divorce or separate herself from a man not truly connected in a relationship.
      Just some reasons to dispel the woman money no marriage, it can work out of commitment and out of love and out of what God has joined together and each knowing there place. Lets stop allowing people going through marriage a beautiful thing miserable because they have to spend 90% of the time making it work.
      When it comes to sustaining a Marriage its 50/50 then each would perform and 100% such that when the other is down there is some from the 100% to help the other.

        Well said. Plenty women don’t realize that marriage is a 50/50 affair in terms of the effort you put into making it work. That is the cause of most divorces.
