Father marries Son's Girlfriend

4/4/2015 4:57:19 PM: Simon(not real name), male 34 years old lives and works in Namibia. When he left Zambia 2 years ago he left behind a girlfriend and his 8 months old baby. Upon his return to Zambia, Simon found that, his girlfriend no longer lives in Chililabombwe but has since moved to Lusaka. He followed her to Lusaka only to discover that she was now living with his father as his wife. This prompted Simon to call 990 to seek help as he now doubted whether the child was his. I asked him how he felt about the whole situation and what he wanted to do. He said that he was upset and confused; he wanted to engage family members. As for the child he said that he did not know what to do. I encouraged him to go with his decision to engage family members and for the child, I advised him to go to the hospital and have a DNA test so that he could know who the real father to the child was. I further encouraged him to continue calling 990 if he felt like talking to a counsellor. He promised to call back immediately the family met.
