…Even though Charlene was my wife until her death, I paid lobola to her mother!

Former Kabwe Warriors player Boyd Mukandawire says Charlene Mumba was his wife as he paid K12,000 dowry to her mother in 2014.

According to Kalemba, Boyd said despite what happened, he is praying for the well being of former Chipolopolo soccer player Rainford Kalaba who is rumored to have been having a relationship with his wife.

The couple had two children together.

Boyd said he married Charlene in 2014 and had been charged K20,000 as dowry out of which he paid K12,000.

“We got married in 2014 when she was still learning at Arakan School in G12, I just paid dowry to her mother and we started staying together,” said Boyd.

“We never separated with my wife, the reason she went to stay that side in Chilenje was because it was near the hotel she was working, we thought that in Emmasdel, we would only be wasting a lot of money and she carried our eldest son Boyd because it could be easier to prepare him for school.”

He said while Charlene was at her mother’s place, he communicated with her regularly as his wife and nothing seemed wrong.

Boyd said he had no idea that Charlene was having an affair with Kalaba whom he regarded as his elder brother until the day of the accident.

He revealed that her death came as double shock to him as he also came to discover that she was cheating on him with a man he regarded as a mentor and elder brother.

“I regarded Kalaba as my elder brother, I don’t feel myself right now, I can’t lie to you because leaving my children orphaned like that, who is going to be taking care of them now. My wife is no more and I blame both of them but I will continue to regard Kalaba as my Elder brother… So as for now I cant say he is not my elder brother despite the situation and I wish him a quick recovery, in fact am praying he gets well soon.

“I Just got shocked after finding out I cant lie, you just don’t know how I was feeling, I fainted three times at home,” Boyd revealed.

On his absence from the Charlene’s funeral, Boyd explained that his family had advised him to stay away.

“When the funeral just happened, I went and I was at the funeral house for two days but I was not treated well and then I also discovered all those Tiktok videos of my wife so my family asked me to stay away, he said.

Boyd said after burial on Thursday 18th April, 2024, he paid the remainder of K8,000 for Charlene’s dowry.

Charlene died on the spot after the Mercedes Benz she was driving collided with a truck on Kafue road on Saturday and was buried on Thursday.

Kalaba, who is owner of the Benz and was on board at the time of the accident, was critically injured and remains admitted to the University Teaching Hospital.

After burial on Thursday, Charlene’s sister Jennifer Lwanga said Boyd had never married been to her younger sibling.
