Although reports affirm that Herbert has payed dowry to Ngoma’s parents but is yet to get married to her properly.
According to Ngoma, the main reason why she sued Herbert was to know the way forward in their relationship since Herbert has never been serious in getting married to her.
“He has never been serious, that is why I brought him to court because I deserve to know the way forward and our future.”
She also said that she started loosing trust in Herbert ever since she found out that he was texting another lady, who she believes is his other lover.
Finally speaking, Herbert opined that he was not serious in getting married to Ngoma, and blamed the delay of their marriage on his poor financial situation and also blamed Ngoma for not giving him enough attention.
After hearing from both sides, the judge noting that there was no evidence of marriage yet advised Herbert and Ngoma to reconcile as that is the best way forward.
