February 21, 2017
Justice MS. M. M. SAMBA has on October 6th, 2016, ruled in a divorce matter between Mr. David Aruna and Mrs. Rachel M .M Aruna, after five years of legal battle in the Freetown High Court.
The Judge ordered that the marriage, which was solemnized between the couple on the 9th May, 2009, at the Sanctuary Praise Church in Freetown be dissolved, because the petitioner, Rachel Aruna, was being cruelled to the respondent, her ex-husband, David Aruna.
“That the Petitioner, having treated the respondent with cruelty, the marriage had and solemnized between Mrs. Rachel M.M Aruna and David Aruna on the 9th May, 2009 at the Santuary Praise Church, Freetown, be dissolved,” the judge ruled.
It was alleged that the petitioner was going round the street of Freetown, slandering his ex-husband to people that did not know her divorce misfortune.
According to the judgment issued by the Honourable Judge, Mrs. Rachel M.M Aruna was divorce for hitting her husband with a mortal stick causing him severe injury to his head, and also entered the former’s place of work and reigned abusive words on him to the hearing of other staff members including senior staff members that caused him embarrassed and was issued a warning letter by his established management.
