Cassandra Banda, the first wife of business billionaire Alhaji Asuma Banda has allegedly filed for divorce after close to five decades of their relationship.

A report by mynewsgh.com reported court records in which Mrs. Banda is seeking the annulment of their marriage with a settlement.

She contends in the court filings that she should be granted 60% of Banda’s inheritance noting the role she played in assisting the now-ailing billionaire from his early days when they met in London.

Cassandra met and married the then 41-year-old Asuma Banda in London in 1974 but she argues that the marriage “has now reached a stage of irreconcilable differences following years of alleged philandering by her husband which she mostly disregarded,” the Mynewsgh.com article added.
