Soccer Star Mukamba Beats Up Pregnant Girlfriend

Bidvest Wits-headed soccer star Denver Mukamba smacks his pregnant girlfriend around if The Herald is to be believed.

Apparently the  Castle Lager Premier Soccer League 2012 Soccer Star of the Year who was part of last year’s double-winning Dynamos side beat up his 19 year-old Mitchelle Mugovera recently in a domestic dispute.

The girl is said to be living with him at his grandmother’s house in Lusaka, Highfield after she eloped last year. He has since moved in with another woman who stays in Waterfalls after accusing Mugovera of being barren.

So the story is that the alleged beating happened after Mugovera confiscated Mukamba’s phone after suspecting him of cheating. She also detained his car keys which resulted in him assaulting her ‘severely’.

A medical examination found her to be three months pregnant.

Then cop this… Mukamba was scheduled to pay lobola to for the Waterfalls woman on Saturday.

If true, that makes the young Mukamba a bad boy. It is the latest case in a worrying trend in domestic violence in Zimbabwe. The most high-profile case last year was that of radio personality Tino Katsande who was beaten up by her then lover.
