Tsvangirai Former Lover Still Battling To Annul Marriage

“We are just coming from the magistrate court where we filed the application to invalidate the marriage licence, and we are tomorrow (Thursday) going to make a follow-up,” Tafadzwa  Hungwe of Venturas and Samkange Legal Practitioners, representing Karimatsenga told Radio VOP Wednesday evening.

It emerged on Tuesday that the Prime Minister and Elizabeth had already obtained a marriage licence issued on August 27 by the Magistrates’ Court in Harare.

High Court Judge Justice Antonia Guvava on Wednesday afternoon dismissed Karimatsenga’s application which sought to stop Tsvangirai from wedding.

The judge said customary marriage was not recognised at law because it was unregistered.

“It is …an order to bar the wedding if the court is satisfied with our legal reasons for the application,” Hungwe added.

Tsvangirai’s wedding with Elizabeth is due this Saturday. President Robert Mugabe and other regional leaders have been invited to attend the ceremony that will be held at the upmarket Rain Tree Lodge in Harare.
