Joho has been given 14 days to respond to the Fazini petition.
Fazini said that the two married on February 11, 2011, and they have two children aged nine and eight years.
She adds that Joho moved out of the matrimonial home in 2013.
“Since the respondent, Joho moved out of our matrimonial home in June 2013, the substance of our marriage has dissipated and has no basis to be sustained from a legal and social standpoint,” Fazzini said.
Fazini said that they lived in the matrimonial home until September 2020. However, she lived alone with the two children.
She adds that there is no hope or possibility of reconciliation or compromise of whatsoever nature or kind between the two.
“At all material times relevant to this suit, the petitioner (Fazzini) and respondent (Joho) were and are still husband and wife having married under Islamic law on February 11, 2011,” read her affidavit.
