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.
