Thessherald—The wife of Peter Mayen Majongdit, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, has filed for divorce a day after her husband fired three shots in the air to disrupt a women’s soccer match on Saturday.
According to a reliable source, the wife insisted that she must file for divorce due to what she described as “reckless behavior” by her husband, who currently holds a public office in the unity government.
Mayen was trying to forcibly take his wife off the pitch while playing when he was stopped by security guards deployed at the stadium.
This is not the first time the Minister has been in the limelight over abuse of power and malfeasance in office.
Last year, Mayen traded blows with individuals after defaulting on outstanding debts, sparking an uproar on social media.
Mayen was appointed in March 2020, in line with the implementation of the peace agreement signed in 2018.
