Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has celebrated the divorce of former late President Robert Mugabe’s daughter Bona and Simba Chikore.
Recently, Bona filed for divorce at the High Court on grounds that her marriage had irretrievably broken down. The two tied the knot in 2014 at a colorful wedding ceremony attended by over 4 000 guests, among them three heads of state and dignitaries from all over Southern Africa.
Mliswa said the separation was good news for the calm Bona because Simba did not deserve.
“The separation of Bona from Simba Chikore is actually good news for her. That guy wasn’t good for her and didn’t deserve her. She is a model for the girl child, calm, unassuming and handles herself well. She deserves a life in peace.
“The guy was out for dodgy business deals, associating with the First Family only and name-dropping for personal aggrandisement. You can’t hold on to such. You will be well Mangwenya. I liked you from the day I met you at a meeting with President Mugabe in Zvimba. You came across as a level headed person. I will forever respect you and pray for you. Your life can still go on. Be strong,” said Mliswa
Bona is claiming custody of the children and demanding US$2 700 per month for each child.
