Summons filed by the Justice Minister at the High Court reads in part:
The marriage between parties has irretrievably broken down to such an extent that there are no prospects of restoration of a normal marriage relationship in that the parties have not lived together as husband and wife since sometime in 2014, thus the marriage is just a shell as they have not shared conjugal rights since then. The parties have developed diverging interests and have become incompatible. The parties have lost all love and affection for each.
Ziyambi is reportedly hoping that:
- Each party retains the movable property in their possession
- Their daughter is given another property in St Martins
- A divorce and an order authorising sharing of their property as he suggested be granted.
Ziyambi also said he will maintain their daughter till she graduates from college or becomes self-sufficient or whichever comes first.
The couple has 2 adult children and Florence has been given 10 days to respond to the summons.
