Owner of Muvi TV, Nyirenda, proprietress of Komboni Radio, Kasoma, part ways as husband and wife


Munthu Party president, Stephen Nyirenda, and his wife, Lesa Kasoma, have been granted divorce by the Lusaka High Court after they both admitted to their marriage having broken down irretrievably.

This was the second time the couple was going separate ways, only that the first time the marriage was dissolved by the Chelstone Local Court on November 11, 2017.

The two, however, later reconciled and tied the knot under the Marriage Act in 2019.

The couple who submitted to Court of having lived a strained marriage relationship as husband and wife, have one child, aged nine years.

Last year, Nyirenda, an engineer, petitioned the Lusaka High Court to dissolve his marriage to Kasoma, a Chemical engineer.

Nyirenda is Muvi Television proprietor while his wife owns Komboni radio station.

During the course of the divorce proceedings before Judge Mwamba Chanda, Kasoma filed for a restraining order against her now former husband and accused him of been abusive .

She accused him of hiding her valuables and laptop which she used for work and school.

“The petitioner has become verbally abusive and the words being uttered as he’s chasing me and the children are hurtful. He has been belittling me in the presence of the children and he calls me an evil shameless, useless drunk in front of the children,” submitted Kasoma.

But Nyrienda said if he were to confiscate anything from her, he would confiscate the entire Komboni Radio whose 80 percent of the investments came from him.

“It does does not therefore make reasonable sense to confiscate a laptop worth K5000 leaving a property worth hundreds of thousands,” he contended.

On March 27, 2024, Justice Chanda granted divorce to the couple as it was evident their marriage had broken down irretrievably.
