D-Day For Tsvangirai Wedding As Cited Marriage Officer Distances Himself
Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s wedding plans will depend on a High Court decision today with matter set to be heard after Locardia Karimatsenga presented a 11th hour bid to stop it.
The case is set for 2.30pm local time in Justice Antonia Guvava’s chambers.
Tsvangirai paid lobola for Locardia Karimatsenga and then dumped her via a press conference 12 days later. He then went on to announce an engagement to Elizabeth Macheka who he plans to marry this weekend. Karimatsenga maintains that she is still married to him as they did not go through the rites to do with divorce known as gupuro in the Shona culture.
Meanwhile, the Methodist bishop cited as a respondent in Locardia Karimatsenga’s urgent application to stop PM Tsvangirai’s wedding this weekend has distanced himself from the wedding saying he has bee wrongly cited.
Bishop Levee Kadenge of the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe says he was never meant to be presiding over Tsvangirai’s wedding to Macheka and that he was dragged into a story he had nothing to do with. In filing his papers he was now claiming costs of the suit.
Karimatsenga has also filed maintenance papers and PM Tsvangirai’s lawyers have said that the hearing for that matter will be held next week Friday.
Tsvangirai himself expects the wedding to go ahead. The invites are already out so if the wedding is stopped, it would be a bit egg-in-face wouldn’t it?
It is a circus we tell you.
