HARARE - Bona Nyapudzai Ouma Mugabe, the daughter of Zimbabwe’s former President Robert Mugabe, is divorcing her husband of nine years Simbarashe Mutsahuni Chikore on the grounds that their marriage has irretrievably broken down with no prospect of restoration. Bona filed for divorce at the High Court in Harare on Tuesday, March 07. She married Chikore in 2014 at a lavish ceremony at the family’s private home in Harare’s plush Borrowdale suburb with three heads of state from the region among the top guests. According to the court papers, the parties have lost all love and affection for each other and have been living apart for a period in excess of nine months. The couple has three children aged seven, five, and two. Bona is claiming custody of the children arguing: “It is in the best interests of the minor children that the Plaintiff is given full custody of the children with the Defendant being granted access to them every alternating weekend from Saturday between 8am to Sunday 5pm agreed in advance at agreed places.” In the case, Bona argued: “In the event of the granting of the Divorce Decree by the court, it will be just and equitable that the defendant be ordered to pay maintenance for the minor children in the sum of $2,700 per child monthly, until attaining of majority status or they become self-sustaining whichever occurs first.” Bona argued that during the subsistence of the marriage, the parties both jointly as well as severally acquired various movable and immovable property. However, she argued that dealing with proprietary issues in the suit will delay the granting of the divorce decree.
