The 28-year-old woman told the court that Salaliki is not serious about their relationship and demanded him to reveal his future plans. 

"He has never been serious, that is why I bought him to court because I deserve to know the way forward and our future," the woman was quoted as saying by Toko.  

Ngomo said that she suspected her boyfriend's loyalty after finding out that he was testing another woman.

Ngomo believes something is cooking between this woman and her boyfriend. 

Salaliki defended himself, saying he was not in the right financial position to marry his girlfriend and also blamed her for not giving her the attention desired by him.

The judge advised the couple that since they are not married, reconcilation is the best way forward.
