Tsvangirai To Wed Elizabeth
Preparations are at an advanced stage with as invitation cards were sent out this week.
Tsvangirai, who has been linked to several women before, will be wedding on 15 September. The event will be held at Rain-Tree in the plush Harare suburb of Umwinsdale.
Tsvangirai’s spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka, confirmed to the Radio VOP this week that the premier will be tying the knot in a month’s time.
“The PM will be tying the note on the 15th of September,” said Tamborinyoka. According to the local daily newspaper, the wedding guest list has so far been a closely guarded secret. It was drafted jointly by the Tsvangirai and Macheka families. It is however expected to feature prominent names from Zimbabwe and outside.
Several popular musicians have been lined up for Tsvangirai’s special day.
Reverend Levy Kadenge of the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe is expected to officiate at the wedding.
The event ceremony will start 2 pm and will be followed by a reception which will start at 16:00 pm until very late.
The wedding is a strictly by invitation affair and no children will be allowed.
Tsvangirai customarily married Elizabeth, the daughter of Zanu (PF) Central Committee member Joseph Macheka in April.
A ceremony to welcome Elizabeth into the Tsvangirai family was recently held at the premier’s rural home in Buhera.
Macheka, a quitssential dresser, has already been in the thick of things accompanying Tsvangirai to his recent trips to the United States, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
She has also quickly got herself into the public spotlight officiating together with the premier at government functions around the country.
Last week she appeared with the MDC leader at the National Heroes Acre.
Tsvangirai recently formally introduced Elizabeth to his coalition government partners President Robert Mugabe and his deputy Joice Mujuru.
The Prime Minister’s wedding announcement put to rest the long drawn rumour around his love life. He has in the past been linked to several women but he has always insisted that he will inform the nation when he is ready to settle down.
