Livingstone Man Fined K25 000 For Sleeping With Friend’s Wife.

A LIVINGSTONE man who forced himself on his friend’s wife to have sex with her has been ordered by the local court to pay K25,000 as compensation.

The court ordered John Mate, 41 to pay his workmate and friend, Moffat Mulombo, after he was found to have committed adultery with his wife, Fololina Sitali.

Sitali told Livingstone principal local court magistrate Harrison Kabwenga that the incident happened when she went to help her husband Moffat Mulombo, 41, plaster their house.

Sitali was narrating in the Livingstone Local Court in a case in which her husband Mulombo sued John Mate, 41 for adultery. Mulombo demanded K25, 000 as compensation.

“ I had gone to help plaster the house we were supposed to move into with my husband and Mate followed me. He then started flirting with me and later started fondling my breasts. Eventually, he removed a condom from his pocket and forced himself on me,” she said.

Sitali said Mate promised to pay her for the sexual service but warned her against telling anybody about it.

And Mulombo said his wife confessed to the sexual encounter after he beat her.
